Since I was trying to do the batman party on a budget I brainstormed for awhile trying to come up with the best, easiest, fastest, cheapest way to make capes. (I can have it all, right?)
I couldn't come up with anything so I broke down and bought some black fabric.
Brought it home and cut out the capes. After having to pay full price for the fabric (I would rather get things for free) I knew I had to cut the 'cape cost' down somehow. I was planning on cutting superhero symbols for the back of the capes onto sticky felt but that was like 3.50 a pack. I needed 2. Instead I pulled some old tee shirts from the closet and cut the symbol out of that (FREE!) and hot glued it on! Worked great!
Here comes the good part. As I was slicing and dicing tee shirts I realized that if you just cut the sleeves and front off of a tee it makes a cape! People! Cheap, Fun, Easy, Fast! <<<---You can have it all!
Goodwill is FULL of capes in all sizes for 1/2 price every 1st Saturday of the month!
Yay.....if your having a superhero party anytime soon.
Here's what I am blabbing about...
Use the fronts to cut out your superhero sign
Cut off the sleeves...
cut up both sides...
tah dah! Capes!
Plus they already have the neck on them so no sewing
Velcro or strings on!
Then you can hot glue the superhero sign on.
I would recommend only hot gluing around the edges.
I think you would be able to see the hot glue swirls if you
did any in the middle.
You can add your superheros initial cut out of sparkle sticky foam.
Hope this helps!
Party on Superheros!
