No Sew Superhero Capes

You don't have to sew to make these awesome no sew superhero capes! Kids love helping develop their character and costume, too!

Little boys love being superheroes. Or at least THESE boys love being superheroes. And I know that they won't always care about this sort of stuff. It won't be long before they'll scoff at an Auntie A made cape as being for babies. And so, while I can, I'm enjoying making them things to help them pretend.

Rita’s Ice, Custard, Happiness Review


Thanks so much to Rita's Ice, Custard, Happiness for sending us coupons for free frozen treats to help us with our post!
