Avengers Super Hero Capes

Pin It
Do you remember from my last post I mentioned that I had been designing and crafting?
Well, I am here now to show you what I was up to!
I had someone place an order for some super hero masks, and she then asked if I could do capes as well.
I have made capes in the past, but nothing like this.
 I told her I could make some, and I was so excited to come up with these templates!

Here are the symbols closer up so you can see them a little bit better.



I will show you a couple of step-by step pictures so you can see how it all came together.
I started by cutting a simple cape shape out of fabric.
The cape measured about 13" across at the shoulders and it was about 20" long from the neck.
Then fold under the edges and sew around the whole thing so there aren't any raw edges.
I sewed on velcro at the neck to make it easy for little ones to get on and off.
Print and cut out the template shapes and trace them on to the paper side of Heat n' Bond (I used the one in the red pack. The one you don't sew on).
Iron the Heat n' Bond (shiny side down) on to the fabric.

Then cut the shape out.

For the Hulk fist, before you print it out make sure you 'mirror' the image. I wanted the fist to face the other way, but I forgot it would be backwards.
Also, labeling the parts of the hand is helpful to make sure the fingers and everything are in the right spot.




For Hulk, Iron on the black circle first,
then iron on the pieces of the hand.

All complete!
For Captain America iron on the red circle first,
then the white ring,
the blue circle,
and finish off with the star.
For Thor iron on the white circle first,
then the black ring,
then the hammer pieces.
For Iron Man iron on the white circle first,
then the black chest blaster piece.
