It's a Bird, It's a plane, it's SUPER boy!

This morning my 3 year old walked up to me with a placemat the rolls up and ties around his neck as a "cape", so what did I do?? I went and made him a real cape of course. Being as that I lost my job a few weeks ago I have extra time to do these things for my kiddos and I LOVE it! I had some Riley Blake fat quarters laying around that I purchased because I loved and never had time to use. Then for the pattern I just kinda winged it. I even made my own bias tape without any directions, other than what my bestie had described to me a while back. So here is the end result!




My first time at applique, and while it is not perfect I think it turned out ok.



Here it is showing the back side too, so it is reversible!!


And after all that I had to bribe the boy to put it on, he decided he doesn't like the Orange "J" goof ball. I am sure he will want to wear it soon though, he is fickle like that.

I love this cape. I was inspired by your idea to make a similar one for my son. I used an old shirt as one side so that he could just pull it over his head instead of needing me to tie it on.
