SuperMan Cape

I threw two of these together, last night and this morning, for the boys.  The stitching isn’t the greatest, BUT it will hold.  🙂  I will work on the prettiness, later!

Image

Two Pieces of fabric.  (Super hero of your choice, and a complementing color.

Image

Sew three sides together INSIDE OUT.

Image

Pull the fabric out so that it is back the correct way (with stitches on the inside).

Cut, iron, and sew the neck-tie piece.  You will also turn this outside out when you are down (so the stitches are on the inside).

ImageImage

Image

Iron a hem and collar for the neck.

Image

Image

Sew the collar down, leaving room for the neck-tie piece to be slid through.

Image

Use a safety pin to pull the tie through the hole.

AND

Voila!  SuperMan (or whomever YOU want) cape!

Here’s the video I used for my inspiration.  She may explain it better.  😉

Newest Project: Baby Gifts

While I missed BOTH of these showers, I am hoping THESE will help make up for my absence…  😉

Image

 

Obviously, one boy and one girl.

Image

Baby Boy’s is what I call the “How to Start Your Own Baby” option.  Just about everything in there, EXCEPT the baby.   😉 

Image

The little girl one is the “Sweet Starter”.  😉  It may look small, but it PACKED with baby necessities.  AND it comes with a, not yet finish, crocheted blanket! 

Yes, I JUST came up with those names!  😉  I LOVE babies!!!  Now that mine aren’t “babies” anymore I THOROUGHLY enjoy making gifts for others!!!  🙂

Did you miss me!!?!

I know you have all been wondering…  “Where did she GO!!!”   😉

My sweet baby boy turned two this week!!  SO, between the actual birthday and his party, I’ve been a busy little bee!!!

He had a GREAT birthday, and he had a GREAT party!

I wanted to share some party photos because I am SO proud of my work!  (lol)  I did almost ALL the decorations with construction paper!!  Do you realize how cheap that was!!!  But, Oh so CUTE!!  😉
