Super Melanie

My youngest daughter, Melanie, has a Superhero 5th birthday party to go to tomorrow.  Being a girly girl, we have no superhero capes in the house.  Thank goodness for google!  I found this FREE Superhero pattern on Nancy Notions website.  The pattern is a PDF file and can be accessed by clicking on the “project instructions” link. For her Super Melanie cape, I decided to do my own thing with the superhero logo.  I drew the butterfly outline and M letter by hand.  I appliquéd the M onto the butterfly outline then appliquéd the butterfly outline to the cape.  Not perfect but my 4 years old is a super happy girl :). She wanted to try it on to see if it will fit and it does!  She did not want to take it off. Off she goes :). The pattern is a super easy pattern and super quick to sew up :).  The neckline was a bit big for her so I added velcro in two areas.  Wished I had reinforced the neckline as then I would have used two snaps instead.  Another option is to add button holes and sew in buttons.  Will try that if I have to make another superhero cape :). Linking up with Stitch by Stitch’s Anything Goes Monday (7th April hosted at Karen’s Quilts Crows and Cardinals) and Blossom Heart Quilts’ Sew Cute Tuesday (8th April).
