Feature Friday - super hero capes

The time finally arrived.  He's been begging me to make him a superhero outfit....so I did.  There are a lot of tutorials out there for capes, etc.  I really liked this tutorial by Lynette at Get Your Craft On.  Her tutorial includes a great how-to for the cape, mask, and even cuffs.  Here's a girly version she made.


I was a bit excited to make this myself.  While I don't have girls and I've missed the whole dress-up and dollhouse stuff, this whole superhero thing is pretty darn fun.  I headed to Hobby Lobby and found the tackiest most magical fabric money could buy.  

May I present....Super Rex.  (Apparently even superheros can be caught in their undies with wet bath-hair.)


His identity is top secret.


Frankly, Superman has nothing on this little guy.


But, even superheros have to take a rest here and there.


Want proof of his speed?  Watch him out-run (or out-crawl) his super fast baby brother.


Yes, the world is in safe hands.


I had so much fun with this I almost want to make my own.  I let him wear his cape somewhere yesterday.  He refused to hold my hand while heading into the place, reminding me that he was a superhero.  I guess that cape is magical.  Here's the tutorial.  Thanks for the fun, Lynette.

In other news, next week will be a normal week and then the next week will be HAIR WEEK!  I'm excited!  Thanks for reading!  Have a fabulous weekend.

  1. Hurray! I remember our first super hero experience. 2 boys means lots and lots of saving the world. Thank you for the link! I am making capes for their birthdays, now they will be even better!
    BTW I stumbled across your blog a week or two ago and can't get enough!

  2. Capes are still a big deal around here. I'm glad you've gotten him on the super hero train. There is nothing better than cape-ing up and going out on an adventure. Go Super Rex! HOw about a peek at the back?

  9. LOVE IT! I made one for the little boy I babysit for a year ago and it looked amazing. One side was Superman & one side Batman. Too bad he doesn't like it, haha. :)

  11. Fantastic outfit. I love the silver. Boy dress-up gets more and more fun, pirates, cowboys, spacemen and aliens. Great superhero shots!

  15. Love it! I am so excited to have found your blog... I too have a son (still too little for super hero capes) and will love making him all of these cool boy things. I was a little bummed out to think I would never get to craft for a little girl but so far I am love making things for a boy.
