Superheroes


I started sewing superhero capes for kids in homeless shelters. Stephanie @ Modern Sewciety featured Enchanted Makeovers on her podcast, episode #59.  Those who know the joy of sewing for others will want to check out the details on needed items at
the Enchanted Makeovers website.  Links for Doll, Pillowcase and Cape patterns are provided on the site.  I chose to do capes in a simple rectangle with a casing for ribbon.  It just does not get any easier or more gratifying!  Every child has a superhero within, the cape just makes hope tangible and a dream's flight pattern a reality.  Is there a better reason to sew?  Small Superheroes inspire me!
