Need a last minute Superhero Cape? Sew this quick Batman Superhero Cape in an evening. The batman cape has inverted scallop edging (bat wing) at the bottom and a valcro fastener at the collar. You don’t need a drafted pattern to sew this Batman superhero Cape (except for the Batman logo template), all you need to do is to fold the fabric as per instruction to cut out the inverted scallop edging and the collar. Download and print out the batman template provided in the tutorial page and start sewing.
My son has a school excursion theme park tour few weeks ago and theme is “Superhero”. His school encourages all the parents to DIY a superhero cape for them to wear during the tour. At the end of the year, there will be a prize for the outstanding DIY cape award for the winning parent (just like what I did for the Minion Hat). Both my son and I were not feeling well days before the tour and I was thinking of giving up as I basically have no energy for any sewing. The clock was ticking and my son was anxious to not seeing mommy sewing the cape for him…. I know that he wanted to join in the tour and dearly wanted to be a Superhero. So, I asked him which superhero he wanted to be, he replied :”Batman!!!”…. oh well, let me pick up all the loosen pieces and try to sew for him. Luckily, I found a 3 yards black satin fabric in my sewing room, and of course some left over yellow fabric scraps from the Safety Sign Triangle Pillow project. Then, I did a quick search on Google to find a Batman logo to download and print. That’s it, I sew it up in an evening and my son has his Batman Superhero Cape to wear just before his bedtime.
The teacher was surprised to see him with the Batman Superhero Cape the next morning because I did tell them that I might not be able to sew it as I was sick. I send him off to the bus and seeing him happily disguised himself as a Batman with his other superhero friends…. It is worth all the efforts!
This Batman Superhero Cape is great for the upcoming Halloween too as it has a cat party mask to go with. Hope to see you sewing it too.
