I have 3 super great boys and, within their realm, they have incredible Super abilities! They can find and conquer the evil Detch Vatsher (dishwasher) at break-neck speed AND haul in (for questioning) the Garbatche Brothers (garbage cans) 2 AT A TIME! ... any parent knows this MUST mean these are children that have been endowed with Super powers!!!!!!

Since providing them with their first Super cape years ago, our boys have gone on from just being Super, to achieving the Hero status around our corner of the world...(they now mow OTHER peoples yards!)

Recognition is the first and most critical thing we can do as parents of Super children.
Most children are great at masking their Super identities!...They will lead you to believe they are average run-of-the-mill kids, but in actuality if you observe them at a friends house (or any home other than your own) you will see they have been endowed with Super abilities also! When viewed (from the secret x-ray eye I have in the back of my head) at other friends homes, I noticed my boys helping to clean the other child's room in a flurry (as I do believe, this was the ONLY way the friend could play outside) I came to the realization that unbenost to myself and husband, we HAD 3 Super boys! As their mother, I recognized these amazing feats and felt it my duty to equip them!

Hence...this Instructable!

Step 1: Warning and Disclaimer / Items needed

You can make a Princess cape using this Instructable but please heed the WARNING and DISCLAIMER below!!

***Beware as you pick out your Princess' fabric! Use ONLY certified Fairy Dust that will gently flutter you to a fabric store with delicate prints. 'Supercenters' are to be left to crime fighting Men-O-Steel and fabric purchased there for your Princess could possibly have her stopping raging runaway steel trains while on her way to Neverland!(gasp!)***

You will need:
1 Brown Paper Bag (for a template)
Masking or Duct Tape
Pins, Measuring Tape, Sewing Machine
Scissors for cutting paper
Scissors for cutting fabric (DON'T use mom's FABRIC SCISSORS for cutting paper!...ask me how my mom knows where the pretty crinkly cut edges on her valentine paper heart (30 years ago) came from...PINKING SHEARS that have never seen a piece of fabric again!) You don't need pinking shears for this project just some good fabric scissors.
For Jr. Crime Fighters: 1 yard EACH of 2 different patterns (36"-45" wide)
For Heroes: 2 yards EACH of 2 different patterns (45"wide)
We shopped a 'Super Stuffmart' and got just the right kind of fabrics in their Mega Hero isle (clearance rack) and found 2 materials that have perfect densities and strengths and also flying capabilities with super speed...all for an unbelievable low price of $2 a yard!!
