Let me begin this post by saying I love being a “boy mom”. My son is my world. I absolutely love this new world of planes, trains, trucks, and cars. Anybody who’s ever gone shopping though, knows there is a gap in the market when it comes to handmade and personalized items for little boys. I am hoping that these capes are the first of many things I can create for my son and other little men out there.
When I was searching through mustache monograms (mustache cape), I came across a superhero alphabet monogram. My friend who does all monogramming for Sew Sassy, was kind enough to purchase and download it for me. I am so super excited with the results. These capes are made from two solid colors of jersey knit fabric, and use sewn-in velcro strips to close the cape around the neck. I found a great superhero fabric to use for the letters. The monogrammed initial is backed and framed with felt, and sewn onto the cape.
Timing on this project was perfect. My friend Susan Crutchfield took my son’s 18 month pictures, and we did some shots with his new cape. I am so excited with how these turned out, so please excuse my photo bomb.
