So after nearly 2 months of a sewing slump & tons of silly mistakes I finally finished SOMETHING!!!!

Back in the first week of Oct we got the monthly preschool calendar... I noticed that Halloween week they would be talking about imagination & play with the dress-up box.  I decided to ask the teacher if they could use anything in particular for it & she said they could really use some boy stuff! 

So I decided to use a bit of the of fleece I have to make up a few superhero sets.  I didn't have any Velcro & we no longer have a fabric shop (only a quilt shop that is strictly fabric, thread, bias tape & quilting patterns) so I had to use bias tape that I had on hand for ties instead but I plan to fix them next week when they won't need them those days.

The cape itself is just a piece of white fleece... then I cut out the letters & masks from sheets of felt.  The letters I just appliqued on stitching a 1/4" from the edge of the letter.  Then I put the bias tape on the neck!  For the masks I just made a small slit on each side & used a piece of elastic thread tied onto it to keep it on. 

The funny thing is I just did ABC in primary colors for preschool... well they are also the first letters of my kids names!  I tried them on & all 3 of them LOVED them and were 'flying' around the house doing superhero stuff.  So I will be making more this weekend! 

Anyways here ya go, I could only get Zander (A for Alexander) to stay still long enough for pictures.  I also took a pic of all 3 of them together.

This is very clever, reminds me of the Super Why show on PBS. Was that your inspiration? This would be especially great for kids whose names are the less common letters since not many things start with thier letter.

Nope, just figured ABC were great since those are the first 3 letters you learn & they are the ABC's.  After the fact I remembered that my kiddos are ABC.  I got the fleece tonight but need to get some felt tomorrow.

What a cute idea. I should make something like that for my little guy. Poor thing all he has to dress up in is his sisters princess stuff. That can't be good. Hee Hee Grin
