Just in time for some last minute Halloween costume sewing, Kymy of EYMM* (Everything Your Mama Made) has come up with a superhero costume pattern bundle.
I really wanted to make a matching set for both my girls and for Silly Bean’s doll, but I didn’t have time to get to the fabric store and pick up enough fabric for all three capes so I raided my stash and made a cape for Miss V. Benefits of sewing for a baby, they don’t require much fabric!
And before anyone says anything, the pattern includes instructions to use velcro for the capes’ closures but I couldn’t find it in my messy craft room. The cape is tied on just for pictures, I’ll add the velcro on before I let her wear it again. 😉
Silly Bean did score a matching mask though!
Pattern Bundle Details:
- 3 mask styles, cape, wrist cuffs and belt, as well as appliques for different shapes (heart, diamond, circle, crown, and more) as well as the alphabet in order to completely personalize your child’s costume. (You can see official details with sizing chart here*)
- big size range: Newborn to 10 PLUS 18″ doll
- Includes sizing chart, yardage requirements chart; clear instructions with diagrams; and plenty of tester photos for inspiration!
I make masks all the time (Silly Bean is always losing the ones I made her), and I’ve found that felt is fiddly and likes to shift a lot. What I like to do is keep the mask pattern pinned to the two sheets of felt, fussy cut around the shape, slip the elastic between the two layers of felt and then stitch around the shape. Once it’s stitched I trim the felt close to the stitch line. It makes adding the elastic a little more difficult but I find it easier to sew in case the felt shifts.
The bundle is for sale here* at the low price of $4.95 BUT until October 21, 2014 with the code HEROSET you can get 40% of the purchase price (valid only on the Superhero bundle) making it just $2.97!!
And I know there are lots of free patterns for capes and masks out there but most of the time they’re in one size only and haven’t gone through testing. I think this is a great deal 🙂
