I made this superhero cape in one evening for my friend’s 2-year old son. My boyfriend instructed me that in order for the cape to be real, it would have to be made in the right colors – blue, red and yellow. I used velcro around the neck so that it would come loose if the little guy got caught on something and stitched everything good and tight so that it would be pretty washable.
The project was based on the following superb tutorial by “A Mommy’s Life With A Touch Of Yellow”:
