Super Birthday #2!

Every little boy needs dress up clothes too. It’s not just for girls, you know. Nathan is my adorable little nephew who is always borrowing his big sister’s princess shoes and dresses. Nothing wrong with that, but I thought it was time he had some more variety in his choices. So why not make him a personalized cape for his birthday … and one for big sister too!

Taylor said she wanted to be Superman, and that Nathan was Spiderman. So here’s Superman sporting her “T” cape!

I’ll keep the written directions to a minimum since the photos are pretty self explanatory…

Nathan’s cape was my first attempt. I sewed the straps on after the cape itself was finished. With Taylor’s cape, I tucked and sewed the straps inside the layers of the fabric. I sewed velcro onto the straps. (Velcro seemed much safer than tying or using snaps)

Taylor pretended to fly in her cape, and then I had to chase Nathan down to put his on. Nathan was too excited about the new gator he got for his birthday, so the cape was on for about 2 hot seconds. Oh well. I’m sure he’ll like it when his sister starts wearing his, or when it’s raining and the gator has to stay in the garage.

Happy 2nd birthday sweet little Nathan. Your aunty loves you so much!
