Super 'D' Cape - photo 2

DIY Superhero Costume

March 25, 2013 Sarah Coggins

I pinned a tutorial two years ago (yes, 2 years!) from The Southern Institute blog for making a superhero cape and cuff from an adult’s t-shirt. Fast forward to a recent birthday invitation for a superhero party and I finally got around to making this cute superhero costume.

I actually picked up the t-shirt at Goodwill so it cost me under $1.50. All other supplies for the cape and cuff I had in my stash. I purchased the blue/silver reversible mask at Target for $3 (purely a luck find as I passed through the toddler section).

My little superhero was more than excited about his new costume. He had fun checking himself out in the new playroom mirror (finally got it hung!). Super D to the rescue!

Supplies: repurposed t-shirt; cotton fabric; interfacing; iron-on adhesive; velcro; Coats & Clark thread.

    I just love those two pics. Adorable!
    I'm pretty sure this is something I could do. Looks simple enough.
