I made this for my neighbor's son's birthday, intended to be size 3T, as modeled by my 19 month old daughter (so its huge on her). This is truly an action shot, I had to chase her down the hall. The cape is made of this shiny stuff I got at Walmart which was only $3 a yard. Ribbon tie, and "A" is for "Addison" was made from two colors of felt. Made template for the A with cute font.

Here's a quick Tut, so easy!

For toddler size, you just need a half yard of whatever material you are using.
A yard of ribbon
Two colors of Felt for the emblem (optional)

Make your emblem with the felt.  It helps if you can't free-hand to make a template on the computer and print it out.  I just found a font that I liked, cut it out and put it together.

Take your piece of fabric and sew the emblem toward the center top of the fabric.
Fold it in half right sides together
Sew up the sides, so that it looks like a pillow case with the opening on the selveges
Turn right side out.
At the top, fold in the raw edges and stitch closed
Now you want to go about 2-3 inches from each edge and put in a one inch pleat, pin.  Then sew the ribbon over the top of the back, covering the pleats (make sure your ribbon is centered).
