My 6 year old granddaughter wanted a cape. I have red satin for some reason, but she wanted black. And with a hood, and 'fancy closer at the neck that is easy to close.' And an "I" on the right hand side - her initial! I bought some black satin fabric, had a fancy gold button and black elastic for the 'closer' but the 'I' had me stumped. I was going to cut out a red "I' and fuse it on but it just reminded me too much of 'the Scarlet Letter.' So I fused a black I on a red eye and fused and appilqued it to the cape. She loved it! She put it on and floated around the house and then settled in the living room. I snuck up on her and heard her planning some adventures!

I made a puppy, a rainbow and today Minnie Mouse. This has been my tradition for my kids and now grand kids. It's always fun to do.

I've been hunting for a pic of the costume I made for my son in Kindergarten. He was the magic carpet from Aladdin. It turned out so cute. I fashioned it from 2 purple bath towels adorned with tassels and I think I made the scribing from felt. I've got to find that pic.

I'm in that sweet spot of having grown and not yet married kids. Some day I will get to do this again with grand babies. No hurry ;/
