Three more of my grandchildren requested super hero capes for their birthdays. Here is the first one:
Clever Little Cape which I have enlarged considerably from the original pattern.
A closer look at the emblem. Just a plain "S" for Sam, or for "Super [fill in the blank]". The emblem is done in his favorite colors.
You can just see the edge of the lining as it's flipped up here.
It's a black background with bright drips of paint in many colors. I chose the same lining fabric for all three capes. When I made the previous three capes, I didn't buy fabric -- just used what I had on hand and it was great. But this time I didn't have much left for appropriate fabrics in the right amount of yardage.

In hindsight, I should have made this cape larger. It fits him now, but for how long? When he outgrows it, assuming he still wants a cape, I'll remove the emblem which is just hand-stitched on and sew it to a larger cape.
One cape down and two to go!
One tiny step toward Christmas prep!
