I've been making super capes for several years for friends and family members children and grandchildren, and this week decided it was time to make MonkeyMoo his very own. I had cut one out for him and had it ready to sew up, but he's grown too big for it, so I had to enlarge my pattern. I want to emphasize to him that he be himself, so instead of the Superman or Batman Logo, I used my Cricut to cut an S and A for Super Alex. I appliqued and then lined it so there are no exposed edges. I used Velcro as a fastener, so that he can fasten it around his neck himself, and I don't have to worry about his choking if it gets caught in something.
Today he said he needed a mask, so right before lunch we went out to TM, and I used some scraps and quickly cut out a mask shape with holes. I've got to do a better one, but it works for now. For some reason he decided the whole outfit needed the Cabella's hat(don't call it a baseball cap, whatever you do). I think he's making a fashion statement with those cowboy boots, don't you?
