My boys have been loving super heroes lately, which is ironic since they have not seen a single super hero movie or tv show. The interest started when Mr. R was a toddler. We had a box of Mini-Wheats advertising the latest Spider-Man movie and Mr. R became obsessed with “Spider-Man cereal”. Not only do we now have a trendy house name for Mini-Wheats, but Marvel successfully introduced super heroes into our house at a very young age. This has expanded to light-up Spider-Man shoes, super hero underwear, and a shirt that says “Today I’m a Super Hero”. Now we can officially add capes to the mix!
Capes are very simple to create, and DIY-ing them is a great way to please not only your child but yourself as well with your handiwork. There are several tutorials out there for making capes, but here you will also find a unique way to make an appliqué easily using any image you can find online. I’m gonna call it unique appliqué!
