This cape is reversible. It is green on the other side with a yellow lightning bolt. I just cut a half circle of each fabric. Cut out the applique shapes I wanted. To put the name on, I used the freezer paper stencil technique. After I had sewed on the appliques, I put the half circles together with right sides facing & stitched together. I left a few inches in the center open to flip right side out, then topstitched around the entire thing. D is now asking that I make him one, so if you would like a tutorial, let me know. As soon as my kids are better ( the 4 year old has bronchitis, & the 9 month old has strep & bronchialitis. needless to say, I'm staying pretty busy with breathing treatments & meds at the moment.), I will be making a green pair of fingerless gloves, a blue pair of fingerless gloves, a blue mask, & a green mask. BTW, he LOVED cape.
On a side note, while working on this, my machine started giving me fits yet again. I looked up every possible thing I could think of to see what might be the problem. Wouldn't you know, my machine is super picky about the bobbins. After I fixed that, all is well again. It makes me want to start sewing again. YAY!!!!!
Hopefully I will have the gloves & mask for you next week. If you can bear with the awful camera phone pics, I might try to make a tutorial for the gloves. It will be my first.
