What kid wouldn't want to be a super hero for Christmas? For about $6, you can outfit your little one with a cape and mask. Here's one that we made for a friend:
Thread cording through the hem on one end to tie the cape around the neck.
Cut out and sew a design on the back.
For the mask, I traced a sleeping mask and used binding around the edges.
Sew on an elastic cord and you're done!
*Hint: you can also use a satin pillowcase for the same effect...and it's already hemmed!
