I was saiving toilet paper rolls for the longest time, trying to figure out how to make them into cars. That didn't work out. Then I started talking with my husband about the comic con that is coming to San Diego. Then it hit me, I should make super hero capes and masks. I'm not an excellent seamstress, but how hard could it be to sew a few straight lines. I did some research and figured out how to make them. I could have just left them blank, but I decided to to add some of the heat transfer vinyl and added a design on the back of them. They are reversible and have two colors for twice the fun.
The capes turned out super cute. It actually looks like I knew what I was doing. I'm still working on the masks, but I think I have an idea of how to do it....execution will be the problem.
I was able to make about 7 of them in time for the OB Kite Festival that I am going to be at this Saturday. I don't know if they will sell or not, but I actually had fun making them. On Monday, one of my friends brought their toddler over and he tried on the cape and the one mask that I had finished. He looked super cute. I was going to take a picture, but my camera battery had died.
I have to figure out a cool way to display them. Maybe I will just have to make one for myself and wear it all day. Now that would be super funny. I can see it now...me wearing a cape and a mask, and trying to sell stuff to customers. Maybe I should figure out how to make a luchador mask next time...mmmhhh. Have fun looking at the pictures.
