FREE Superhero Capes for Make Believe Week

Are your little ones full of imagination and creativity?  Mine have both in abundance.  

Which is wonderful and sometimes overwhelming.  But that is why I am so excited about this Superhero Cape pattern.

Grab this easy superhero cape pattern and dress up like all your favorite heroes.

For Christmas, I put together a fun Dress Up Box for the Little Miss.  It included all sorts of fun things, including several of the tutorials I have on the blog like the Anna Play Dress, Little Artist Palette, and the Cabbage Patch Clothes.  

I knew we needed some of our own Superhero capes.

First I had to decide on which superhero capes to make.  That was probably the hardest part. 

 But since our cape pattern is reversible, I knew I could get 4 superheros from just making 2 capes.  We decided on Superman, Batman, Captain America and Spiderman.

And yes, I know they don't all have capes.  But for kids they HAVE to have capes.  

Lucky for you, we have a download for the Superhero Symbols just for you!!!  We have them both in PDF form and SVG form if you want to use your cutting machine.  {See how I applique using my Cricut Maker here.}
