I follow a blog called Melly Sews. She is an amazing seamstress! And I LOVE her patterns! Wish I had enough money to own them all and to make them all! BUT I don’t so I make do with what I can afford hoping that someday I will have more time and money to devote to all the amazing designers I love.
Anyway, she is doing a series called Sew in Tune. Can you guess what it’s about? If you guessed sewing and music you are RIGHT! More specifically, she wants us to be inspired by songs and create clothes for this series. I love the song ‘My Hero’ by the foo Fighters.
Which I posted about here, and I’ve had super hero capes pinned on my pinterest page for quite some time so I decided to finally make them. The pattern provided over at My Own Road was a little too small for my older boys so I had to add some length to it, which was easy. I just inserted another sheet of paper between the two pieces I printed out and we were all good… until my husband pointed out that they were to skinny and not wide enough AFTER I had already cut out all the material. *SIGH* I guess we can’t always win at everything, right?
My boys did mention that they were small, but they got over it about 5 seconds later and have been enjoying fighting crime with REAL capes! Here they are to prove that I’m not making this all up:)
So, what do you think?!! I’m happy that I made them! And really happy that the boys love them so much! Now I need to make one for my 2 year old because he wants to be exactly like his older brothers!!
I forgot to mention what material I used, she suggested using knit or old t-shirts. Well, I didn’t really have either of those in black and the boys were really set on black. I did have a TON of left over black fleece from Mark’s Christmas bean bag that I have yet to finish, so I decided to use that instead. It seemed a little harder to work with, because of it’s thickness, but overall I like how they turned out using the fleece.
Well, thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you’re having a wonderful Tuesday!! Come back tomorrow for a cute St. Patty’s outfit I put together over the weekend for a sweet little girl!
