Back to ljc's Projects
I really like to give handmade gifts for the holidays, so I try to make as many as possible. This year I made the Martha towel capes for Hannah and the twins.
I started with brightly colored towels.
I used illustrator to make a superman like emblem and the girl's intials.
I cut them out and pinned them to felt as patterns.
This is Hannah's "H"... it had to be purple through and through.
Hannah... Leah... and Olivia.
I first sewed the letters to the shields and then the shields to the towels.
At the top I sewed a big button and a loop of ribbon for securing the cape around the neck.
And here are the finished capes. I am hoping the girls will be able to leap tall swingsets wearing these.
