These capes are made out of fleece and are super easy to make since you don't have to finish the edges of fleece.
A 20 in. wide cut of fleece will make 2 capes:
Cut a piece 20 in wide and 24 in long. Cut the bottom edge the correct shape for whatever super hero you are making. I rounded the corners for Superman, made pointy "bat-wings" for Batman, and a scalloped edge for Dora.
for the neck loop, cut a strip of fleece 2 in. wide and 16 in. long.
You can whip up one of these for your favorite little person in about 30 minutes, including cutting. And while you're at it, you might as well make two at once from your 20 in. cut of fleece and have an extra one on hand for a gift for your next birthday party invite!
These are going in the mail today to my friend and I can't wait to hear if Grandpa earns himself some good "brownie points" with superhero gifts for everyone!
