|Lunchtime for Batman|
I got the idea for these hats and capes from some cartoon BatmanValentines that I had as a child. (Lilly somehow scavenged them from who knows where). You know, the ones where Batman is blue and black.?? Yes? Anyone remember this? Is anyone reading this? Anyways, I used two flat bedsheets, one blue and one black and just made up a pattern by taking two measurements. One around the kids necks, and the second their height.
I used one blue and one black for the two tone (reversible) effect. I scalloped the edges like the cartoon, and voila! Bat Capes!
P.S. Do NOT use self sticking Velcro. It can NOT be machine sewn. (It ruins the needle with gunk.) Then you have to hand sew the velcro on and because of the gooey sticky stuff that doesn't stick to the fabric, just to the needle and your fingers it takes FOR- EV -ER! Just sayin'.
Stay tuned for part three The Dark Knight Rises. Which will include belts and gloves.
