Do you have a superhero in your house? Kate is here to show you how to make superhero wrist bands! Thanks for the tutorial!

Hi everyone! I’m Kate from see kate sew

I blog about sewing, crafts, fashion and more. I really love ruffles! I share new tutorials each week on my blog. Some of my favorites are this vintage suitcase chair, the scrap map and a ruffle shower curtain.  I have a little boy who is just starting to get into the age where it will be fun to dress him up, so this series is great!

 Today I’m sharing an easy tutorial for superhero cuffs! Because a superhero is not complete without them!

Materials:

3 colors of felt
velcro
First print out your template and cut out two cuff pieces and a star for each cuff. The template is sized for a small toddler, so if you have a bigger kiddo, just make a larger shape. 

Stack the two cuff pieces and topstitch them together all the way around at 1/8-1/4″

Sew the star in the middle.

Your velcro should be as long as the short edge. Sew one piece of the velcro to the front of you cuff and the other piece to the back of the opposite side.
Velcro it together and you’ve got one little cuff!
Now repeat for the other side and go save the world!
You can even switch up the stars for something else like hearts or lightning bolts!
Thanks for having me here Andrea! And thanks for reading my little tutorial! Come over to see kate sew and check out some of my other tutorials!

    So simple. These are first on my list of things to sew as soon as I get my machine back. Because you can’t be a superhero without ALL of the accessories, ya know?

    I just finished mine!!! And they match the superhero cape I won on a giveaway last year. I’m so pumped!!! I have to admit, I haven’t ever sewed before but this was my first project and it came out smashingly!! I just got a sewing machine the other day. Only thing I couldn’t figure out was how to make the sewing machine sew through the hard plastic part of the velcro without breaking. So I hand sewed it. I can’t wait to dive into more!! Thanks so much for the tutorial!!

    Lisa,
    So exciting this was your first sewing project!! Such a fun way to start. Some sewing machines hate Velcro. I've found using the hand crank instead of the foot pedal helps when layers are thick. Thanks for commenting!

    I made these with red and black fleece and instead of velcro, used a button and buttonhole and they turned out soooo well! My son loves them! (Instead of the star, I did an A for his name, Atticus) Thank you so much for the pattern and tutorial!!! :)
