I've gone on and on about these capes...
and now I'm going to show you how to make one (or 30 of them, to be exact).
What you'll need:
Fabric Paint (the picture shows spray but I ended up using regular paint & a foam brush)
Glitter Fabric Paint (optional)
Fabric Fusion velcro
Start with a towel.
I got mine from Target.
They have a great selection of colors (and they were on sale).
I decided I wanted to use initials for the ladybug and lizard.
I found the SuperHero template here.
I traced it onto freezer paper and cut out the shape & letter with an Exacto knife.
Once the shape & letter were cut out, I ironed them onto the towel.
Next, I added the fabric paint.
*I used regular fabric paint and a foam brush because I felt the spray soaked through too much.
For extra sparkle, I sprayed some glitter fabric spray.
Once the paint is dry, based on the paint instructions, remove the freezer paper and .....tada
I added velcro so the kids could wear them.
*I don't sew, that's why I chose iron on velcro :)
The process was pretty easy..it took a little time since I had to make so many.
For the capes with stars, I used the same background shape. I printed out a star I found online, traced onto the freezer paper and cut it all out.
Now I consider myself an expert cape maker :)
I hope you'll be inspired to make your own capes for the superheroes in your house!!
