This Wednesday, moms and kids across the country will come together for a national day of action to ask our Senators to be superheroes for kids and support comprehensive chemicals reform. To help demonstrate their cause the lovely ladies from Mom’s Rising asked if I would create a quick & easy cape tutorial for their readers.
Um, a reason to craft AND for a good cause? Yes, please!
Here’s the easy, NO SEW, superhero cape I made for them:
All you need are a few basic supplies from your local fabric store.
1 & 1/2 yards of red knit fabric, (knit is like t-shirt material & the ends won’t fray) 1 yard of red ribbon & scissors.
Lay your fabric out & along one of the long ends fold the edge of the fabric over 1″. With your scissors make several snips in the fold, 1 inch apart, down the length of the fabric. Open the fold & you’ll now have several slits to weave your ribbon in & out of. After the ribbon is woven through all the slit gather the fabric towards the center. Take each end of ribbon & loop it back through the last slit & knot. To keep your ribbon ends from fraying you can quickly run the edge over a flame & it will seal them.
