Templates for super hero logos.
Plus this pin:
T-shirt cape tutorial.
As we planned our spring break pins, I let Luke pick out which super heroes we should make. He picked Flash for himself and Superman for Will. While I have nothing against recycled t-shirts, I scored some fresh new ones at Hobby Lobby on sale for less than the price of a Goodwill one. I printed out the logos from the first pin. They were a little smaller than I anticipated and wanted. I am sure I could have blown it up but I was frustrated with my printer at the time and decided the current size would work.
Luke helped me cut the templates out but then got distracted by Mickey Mouse while I cut out the logos from felt. I teased my facebook friends with this photo this morning.

Also, the cape tutorial called for Velcro closure in front of the cape. For Will, I figured he could better maneuver in and out of the t-shirt collar than a Velcro closure. I let Luke decide for his and he wanted the Velcro. It made Will's cape a little loose, but he didn't seem to mind. If you don't sew, this would be a great way to do it. Then you could hot glue the logo on and have a complete project with out sewing a stitch.

The turned out super cute and the logo isn't too small. The boys love it and the Flash has been zooming around the house all morning.
Total cost: $6
Total time: 1 hour 15 min
Final verdict: Smiles all around! The boys love them and they were really easy.
