Here's how to make a superhero cape top. There are no ties around the neck so it's comfortable for a young superhero to wear. We made a lightning flash design but you could make any logo on the front such as the first letter of the child's name. Some basic sewing is required to attach the cape to the T-Shirt, but it's a relatively easy project which could be completed by novice sewers.

Time: 30 minutes
Level: Medium

Materials
Plain T-shirt
Rectangle of material for the cape (same width as child's shoulders and length from shoulder's to child's knees)
Felt for logo
We also used some shiny gold fabric to make the lightning flash
PVA white glue
Sewing machine (or can hand sew)
Scissors

Method
Cut a rectangle of material to make the cape. This should be about the same width as the shoulders on the T-shirt and about the length of the superhero from the shoulders to the knees. Edge the fabric if needed to stop it fraying.
Sew the cape onto the back of the T-shirt across the shoulders. We used a sewing machine, but you could also hand sew this on. We sewed all the way across the width of the cape to securely attach it.

Back of the top


To make a lightning flash logo, cut a circle from red felt. Cut a lightning bolt shape out of another piece of felt and glue shiny gold fabric on (or just use yellow felt). See pictures below for shapes.

Logo components


Glue the lightning bolt onto the red circle of felt using PVA white glue, then glue the logo onto the front of the Tshirt.
