Super Hero’s Capes

Hi there! Remember me? Well, if not, let me introduce myself. I am the busy, over ambitious mother to 8 and grandmother to 5 woman fast approaching old age who is feeling the need to cram just as much as she can into life as she knows it. Oh! And we are finally empty nesters….holding my breath still on that one….No, really! It’s all good. But, there have definitely been some changes in our household and our life styles in the past few months and that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.

So….how about all this super hero stuff anyway? A few months ago (okay, maybe a year ago) I was asked to copy a super hero cape for one of the sewing families that I was giving lessons to a couple of years ago. Mom had borrowed a cape made by another mom and was needing to return said cape but, her son loved it so much she wanted one made that would be his own.

The mascot for the University of Virginia is the Cavalier or sometimes referred to as the Cav Man. I love this cape style because it doesn’t involve anything being tied around a “little one’s” neck. It is a harness style with a velcro belt — if you will.

The mom took pictures of the cape with a tape measurement laid out next to it and I just re-created it.

While I was working on it, I started thinking of all the other super hero capes that I could make.

And then this one….

And there are still more….Wonder Woman. And even all the Disney characters with capes. Whew!!!! I need to get busy again.

Anyway, here is a pic shared with me of the little boy with his prized Cav Man cape and his super hero.
