Stuck at home with a poorly 5yo, hacking cough and a temperature of 39.6 degrees...what do you do when the Calpol kicks in and he starts to get bored with Wacky Races/Danger Mouse/Wallace & Gromit?
Well...you make a Superhero cape of course!
Introducing Captain Invincible:
A quick google turned up this pattern. A quick rummage through the fabric stash revealed half an unused Ikea fleece blanket, some ribbon and a couple of felt stars and voila! One Superhero cape all ready for Superhero day at school with the minimum amount of fuss and very little sewing.
