Super Hero Capes

This year for Christmas I made Super Hero capes for my fabulous nephews. I followed the tutorial I found here. They were super easy and fun!

I bought my towels at Walmart, they had the best color selection in my area. You will also need fabric paint and freezer paper. Although they are easy, plan at least 4-5 days to complete each cape. You will want to wash the cape before you begin working, then I did 2 coats of paint, and then you need to allow 3 days for the paint to dry. After the paint is dry, wash one more time.

The tutorial calls for velcro to close up the neck - I just used thick ribbon and sewed it to the towel with matching-color felt to reinforce the connection between the fabric and ribbon.
