My son has recently entered the superhero stage. A few days ago he got the kitchen towel and insisted I tie it around his neck because he wanted to be a superhero. Yesterday we went to a local indoor play area and he found a Snow White cape, which he, again, insisted I put on him. He wore that thing the entire time we were there and kept telling everyone he was a superhero. It was too cute. So, I came home and decided to make him his very own superhero cape. I completely winged the drafting of the cape and although it isn’t perfect, he doesn’t really care. Do you have any idea how hard it is to draw a thunderbolt? The L is his initial.
I put the cape on him this morning and he ran away saying “Super [Monkey], to the rescue!” Hilarious! He got that from Super Why!
The cape is fully reversible. It’s made with silky fabric from Jo-Ann. The thunderbolt is sewn in felt and the the L is glued on felt. It’s a bit big on him but he’ll grow into it.
awesome cape from an awesome mom!
