Okay I'm finally getting this post up. On my husbands side of the family we do a gift exchange every year. Well Christmas of December 2010 (yup, I said 2010) we had my sister in law, her husband and our two adorable nephews, Kaalam and Xander. I decided to get all creative and make them masks and capes. Fast forward to July of 2011 (yup, 2011) and I finally got the caps and masks finished and sent off to them. I'm happy to report that although the gift was over 6 months late they were thrilled with it none the less.
I found templates for both the masks and the capes in this post on the blog Living Locurto. I bought stiff felt for the masks and cut out the boys initials and some lighting bolts and stars to attach (I used fabric glue). I then sewed some elastic to the backs using my sons head as a template. For the capes I bought some felt which I folded in half. I then cut out the capes on the fold and then sewed more initials, lightening bolts and stars onto them to personalize each one. I think they turned out pretty cute!
So fast forward to March of 2012 and I'm finally posting about my crafty adventure. Wow, I'm a slacker! Hope you enjoyed!
A huge thanks to my sister in law Amy for taking pictures of her boys for me to share. : )
