The kids dressed up as superheroes for Halloween. I figured it would be easy since they already had capes, but my son’s was in black satin brocade with gold trim. Not quite superhero like. So I made a trip to the fabric store and bought 1 m piece of red knit fabric . It came in a tube. I debated separating it and making it one layer, but decided to leave it with two layers and I find it has a nice weight to it. In a separate trip to Walmart, I bought black bias tape since I forgot to bring a small piece of fabric to match with and I figured it was better to contrast with black than pick a bad match in red (they had a really poor selection anyways, Walmart in Canada has been phasing out the fabric departments over the past couple of years). I gathered the top, added the bias tape and found it to be still too wide at the top, so I folded the sides inward and added velcro for the closure.
I would have posted pics while worn, but I couldn’t get my son to stay still long enough for a decent picture!
1m knit material from the bargain bin (no other info on it), bias tape, about 2" hook and eye tape
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
