I would just like to warn everyone that this instructable includes lots of bad photography. I started working on this cape at about... hmm... 12 AM. Therefore, no natural lighting, and no good lighting in the apartment.
I really must remedy this.
Fighting crime during the night is really hard right now.
But anyway - this cape was made because my friend Josh and I decided he needed one. Josh will henceforth be known as JOSHMAN. The only thing I asked was that he pose for stupid pictures in the cape if I made it.
I think we accomplished that quite well. Jeff and Seth even got in on the action.
Step 1: Supplies needed to fight crime in style.
- a sewing machine complete with thread
- 2 colors of heavyweight fabric (felt) - step three will explain how much you need.
- nice, sharp scissors
- a yard stick
- something to mark the fabric with (a ballpoint pen will work)
- an iron
- contrasting fabric
- some sort of double sided fusible webbing suitable for applique - Steam-A-Seam is a popular brand name.
