Today's frugal find is another Do-It-Yourself project: T-Shirt Superhero Capes! These DIY capes are cheap, simple, and sure to bring hours of endless fun. I made all 3 of these in just a few hours and spent less than $5.00 total. Want to be extra frugal? Use an old T-shirt!
1. Cut the sleeves and the front out of a T-Shirt. I used adult sizes to achieve the desired length.
2. Use fun fabric to create some sort of design for the back. I used a star and a lightening bolt. I also added a ruffle to the bottom of the girl's cape. The sky's the limit.
3. Apply Iron-On to the back of your patterned fabric. (Iron-on can be found at any fabric store and comes with instructions.) Apply your design to the back of the cape.
4. You can also use the extra T-shirt fabric to make arm bands or an eye mask.
