A few weeks ago while Penelope and I were on a mommy-daughter date, we passed a batman raincoat in the mall. Penelope became obsessed. She wouldn’t stop talking about capes and bats for the entire 45 minute drive home.
As soon as we got home, I made her a cape using our old worn out black bedsheets. I just looked up a few tutorials, but then ended up doing my own thing, just based on how much fabric we had left. It didn’t take much to whip this thing up, and it made Penelope’s day. Week, even.
She wouldn’t stop talking about a bat on the cape, so I ended up cutting out a little pink bat and pinning it on her cape. I’ll sew it on her when Penelope settles on a logo for her cape.
She didn’t take it off for a few days, and any time I asked her to help get a diaper or help with anything, it was, “Penelope to the rescue!”
The other day, her teacher said that she’s most definitely the girliest tomboy she’d ever met. I take that as quite the compliment. Penelope is a very well-rounded little girl.
I can’t figure out why it didn’t dawn on me to make her a cape sooner. It’s so easy and Penelope gets so much mileage out of it! Check out these cape tutorials:
