When I saw this post from Sheridan last year, it seemed like it would be a very long time before my little wee boy would be ready for a superhero cape. But about two weeks off his third birthday my boy started bugging me for a cape. Fortunately, thanks to that blog post, I was prepared with a pattern and some fabric so in one night I was able to create this.
I only put the logo on one side and didn’t top stitch around the cape because I thought it looked nicer as it was. It is a great pattern. I decided not to give it to him for his birthday because he was getting a REALLY BIG present so he has been running around yelling ‘superhero, superhero, superhero” with that cape for a few weeks now.
Imagine my surprise when my sister gave him a full superhero costume for his birthday last weekend.
He is sooo in love with this costume, I have trouble getting him to take it off. It was understandable but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed (well maybe more than a bit). My cape seems a bit tame, not quite up to scratch, not nearly as exciting. Until I remembered…
Even superhero’s need a wash day spare.
