The other day it was my friends little boys birthday and I was stuck on what to get him. I know that he loves dressing up and thought he would love a little superhero cape. It turned out to be really easy to make and didn't take too long at all.
What you will need to make the cape:
- two pieces of fabric ( i used felt) measuring 50cm by 80cm
- sewing machine or a needle and thread
- Pins or tape to keep fabric together whilst sewing
- pritt stick
I firstly drew with a crayon the outline of the cape then cut out the shape, It came up a bit shorter than I liked but as this was for a toddler I left it as it is. Then cut out the other pieces of fabric using the first as a template.
Then I sewed the two pieces of fabric together I ended up sewing by hand in the end but I think it would be stronger by sewing machine.
I then cut out the design on the back with the left over fabric and glued them on with prit stick. You could sew them on to make it more durable.
