Each of my patterns is drawn digitally with graphic design software. All of my instructions include either full-color photos or easy to read graphics with EVERY STEP! Nothing is hand drawn. You also have full support from the designer (me!) when you purchase a pattern. This is what buying indie is all about!
From the most trusted source of superhero cape know-how we bring you the Superhero Cape Pattern in PDF format! My tutorial has been on the internet for many years and has been used by hundreds of sewists worldwide.
If you have boys of your own, this pattern is a must-have. The sizes are 2/3, 4/5, and 6/7, but the sizes are meant to have the cape hit your child at the knee. If you have an older (or taller) child that would like a cape, the size 6/7 would work just fine.
NEW: This pattern now includes: the full sized-pattern for a double-sided cape, full-color photo instructions, an entire full-sized alphabet for applique, and other patterns for symbols that you can use to build your own personalized superhero applique. The PDF is 30 pages packed full of instructions, patterns, and applique ideas. I do have other licensed applique patterns that are freely available to anyone on my website. They include: Spiderman, SuperWHY!, Word Girl, a princess crown, other common super hero appliques:
ALSO NEW: I have updated the pattern to have a better neckline and two closures instead of one. The photo shows snaps, but hook and loop closures (ie: Velcro) can also be used. All the instructions are in the PDF!
This PDF pattern will be sent to you within 24 hours of receiving payment. There are a few exceptions to this that can be found in my shop policies. The PDF will be sent to your Etsy email address.
My pattern is copyrighted so please do not distribute it or sell it:) Rights to sell the finished capes themselves are available for a small fee. Just convo me!
3/4 - 1 yard (depending on the size) of two different cape fabrics
felt or fabric remnants for appliques
hook and loop closures OR snaps
THIS CAPE IS SUPER, SUPER EASY TO MAKE! No pun intended:) I've had MANY beginning sewists make this cape with fantastic results.
FEEDBACK from happy customers:
"Brilliantly simple pattern, very easily modifiable. Thank you!"
"My 2 and a half year old Grandson absolutely loves this cape. He tells everyone that Granma made it for him at her house. A simple and quick pattern. Thank you."
"I LOVE this pattern! I am very much a beginner when it comes to sewing, and this pattern was very simple! I made capes for my daughter, my 2 sons, and my 3 nephews for Christmas. They all love their capes and play with them all the time!"
