Snips and snails and Super Hero capes

 My little nephew is turning 3 tomorrow. He is all boy, there's no doubt about it. It loves walking around in his Batman pj's saying "I'm Batman" in his best deep voice. Since I did his sister's Cinderella dress for her birthday just three weeks ago, I didn't want him to feel left out despite the fact that we are moving tomorrow!!! And we just determined this move was happening a mere 10 days AGO!!!

Since he is all boy and his sister got a whole dress, I knew these would go by much faster so I did 2. He was so excited. I gave him his present in the car and he looks at his mom and said " Can I get out and run around in my Batman cape?" She obliged and I wished I'd gotten pictures of the little squirt running around with his cape trailing behind him.

I did these with a simple rectangle that was about 24" X 30 " and pleated the top so they would fit around the shoulders. I did two 6"x2" strips and added velcro so he could put it on and take it off all by himself. The designs were cut out on the LPF using the same cartridges as here.

Score one for Aunt Tiff!!

  1. Awesome capes! I have a 3 year old boy who would love these. And home made is so much nicer than the nasty nylon ones you can buy at the toy shop!

  2. Very cute! Every boy should have a few super hero capes. What a nice auntie you are!
