Dish Towel Superhero Cape

Whenever my nieces come over, they raid my dish towel drawer for "dress-ups."  Yes, they use dish towels for everything from dresses to capes.  It's very fun, and very cute -- but it makes for a lot of laundry!  :o)

Last week at the dollar store I spotted some dish towels -- flour sack style, but a bit smaller and in fun, bright colors.  It was meant to be!  I went straight home with a few and turned them into Dish Towel Superhero Capes -- complete with contrasting lining and a superhero initial!  And it only took about 15 minutes per cape!  [come see how I did it!]

Project Materials:

  • two dishtowels, $1 each
  • scrap of fusible webbing, on hand
  • velcro, on hand

Total: $2!
