It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a.....

Caped Super Hero!

I recently completed 4 capes for Leif's best buddies - two for superheros and two for princesses.

My original attempt looked an awful lot like a Dracula cape so, the night before the party, I scrapped it and started over using a combination of these two tutorials. I was so pleased with the results that I made the two princess ones a week later. And shhh....Leif will be getting one (superhero, not princess) for Christmas this year. Let's just hope it goes over better than the Kermit costume!

One for Ray.

And one for Ronan. Both were lined with blue.

Super Ray! Ro wasn't interested in wearing his at the party, but that's ok - there was a lot going on!

And for the two Princesses, I did flower wands with sparkly button centers and ribbons hanging down. Azure had to have purple, of course, with butterflies inside and I did a pretty pink with sweet peas inside for Julia.

For Princess Azure.

For Princess Julia.

Two pretty, pretty princesses.


  1. Amanda! What a fun blog. OK I need to be caught up... how old are the kids and how many are there? It's been a LONG time since I've seen you guys. We never made it to Hawaii but I promise when we do, we look you up :) I hope the 6600 is treating you and your projects fantastically. I hope you have a great Christmas! Julia

  2. Those are so great! You have so many talents. I admire you so much!!!
