Clever Little Cape
-- is so easy and comes out so cute. I've made it larger or smaller over time for various sizes of kids. I have several size patterns by now, made out of newspaper. The various emblems, I sort of made up on my own.
|Inside each cape I embroidered a little symbol. Here is Gromit ...|
|... and here is a kitty.|
Then along came a couple more in Nevada:
|The emblem for Super Elliott-Mouse.|
|And his embroidered mouse.|
|This photo shoot was the last time the Nevadans came out for a visit, in 2012. You can see Micah, in his tiny blue cape, sitting beside Sam on the big rock in the middle.|
|Josiah, Elliott, Julia, Micah, Sam, Darrin, Emily|
|Darrin and Sam in action|
|You can see why Sam needed a new cape!|
1) Sam requested a new, bigger and longer cape.
2) Micah needed a new cape so his could be passed on to his little brother Nathan.
3) We needed an emblem for Nathan's cape.
4) Baby Arielle needed her own superhero cape for photo shoots and such.
And so I got busy.
|Sam's new cape|
|Ari's princess emblem|
|Ari's baby-sized cape|
|Sam's outgrown cape turned into a new cape for Micah-Moose. I wasn't able to embroider a moose inside but I found a cute moose applique to use.|
|We did a photo shoot on the property of friends. You can see Nathan at the far left in Micah's outgrown cape, with an "N" emblem now.|
|Perfect place for it!|
|Micah in action!|
|One of my favorite shots. Love the action!|
|Our local superheroes got to wear their capes in a parade in early August. Their summer reading program theme was super heroes. Perfect!|
|If you look closely, you can see baby Ari in her little cape, being "worn" by Mommy just past the building, to the right.|
That's it ... a summary of our superhero capers so far. I have a feeling Super Gromit and Super Emily-Cat will be outgrowing their capes any day now.
