It's a Bird...It's a Plane....

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.
