    Default HELP-- I need 12 superhero capes for next weekend

    Does anyone know how to make them up quick and need some extra cash? I'm not sure the cost, but I'll pay for material and time. I need 12 capes, just simple no design needed for a birthday party the 11th. I hadn't planned to do them, but I'm regretting it now so think I will really regret it if I don't at least try to find someone.

    what if you took old t-shirts and cut it so that the collar is attached to the back flap?...so the sleaves and front of the shirt are cut off....know what I am saying?

    They are super easy to make. Get jersey fabric and google a template. Lens mills has Velcro that is self adhesive but I glue gunned for extra hold

    This is definitely the way to make them quick and easy. Got to one of the thrift stores and get them cheap, you can buy larger sizes for longer capes. The kids just pull them over their heads and t-shirt material doesn't fray so you don't even have to hem them if you don't want to. It will just take a pair of scissors and a bit of time.
