Tutorial by Little Pink Monster
Here’s the easy, NO SEW, superhero cape I made for them:
All you need are a few basic supplies from your local fabric store:
- 1 & ½ yards of red knit fabric, (knit is like t-shirt material & the ends won’t fray)
- 1 yard of red ribbon & scissors.
Lay your fabric out & along one of the long ends fold the edge of the fabric over 1″. With your scissors make several snips in the fold, 1 inch apart, down the length of the fabric. Open the fold & you’ll now have several slits to weave your ribbon in & out of. After the ribbon is woven through all the slit gather the fabric towards the center. Take each end of ribbon & loop it back through the last slit & knot. To keep your ribbon ends from fraying you can quickly run the edge over a flame & it will seal them.
That’s it! Very simple, very fun & for a very good cause!
