...the web's greatest tutorial ever for a reversible superhero cape! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Puking Pastilles for the seriously best tutorial!
This, my friends, is one of the reasons I have been too busy to post. I made the first one for my nephew's birthday (turning 4), one for my son, and one for another 4-year-old's birthday. And I will be making many, many more of these in the future as they are AWESOME. My son loves his beyond words and wears it everywhere. I modified it a little bit by making the opening around the head wider, the cape a tad longer and wider as well, and adding an extra row of velcro to make it fit tighter for now (as to avoid the 1980's off-the-shoulder look that my son was sporting at first) and still open up wider to accomodate the little superheroes as they grow. I also made the bottom of mine with straight corners instead of rounding them, since this is the style my son's Superman figure sports.
What better idea, a reversible superhero cape, for a little boy who changes his mind every two seconds on who he wants to pretend to be?
(Oh, and if you are my friend and your child is around the same age as mine, you can bet your bottom dollar what your kid will be receiving for his or her next birthday. And yes, I said her, since there is a girl version as well.)
