You're somewhat experienced with the skills necessary to complete this project, but you haven't mastered all the elements, yet.
Step 1
Project Note: Use image as a guide. Step 1 Print all diagrams from michaels.com. Step 2 ADULT: Press the T-shirt to remove any wrinkles, and set it aside. Step 3 Trace and cut the patterns for the T-shirt: ·        Blue Foam: Four center chest pieces (diagram 2A-2D) ·        Red Stiffened Felt: Four outside chest pieces (diagram 2E-2H) ·        White Foam: Small star (diagram 2I) Step 4 ADULT: In a well-ventilated area, cover the back of every piece with spray adhesive and attach to T-shirt as shown. TIP: Be sure to follow all safety directions listed on the spray adhesive’s packaging. Step 5 Trace and cut the patterns for the shoulder harness: ·        Walnut Felt: Two large harness pieces (diagram 3A) ·        Black Felt: Two small harness pieces (diagram 3B) ·        Gray Foam: Two harness buckles (diagram 3C). TIP: Adjust the harness pieces, if necessary, so that they will reach from the top of the shoulder to underneath the armhole at the side. Step 6 Cut two slots into each buckle where indicated on the pattern. Step 7 ADULT: In a well-ventilated area, spray the backs of all four harness felt pieces and buckle/strap pieces with spray adhesive. Attach to shirt as shown, or refer to the guide in diagram 1. Set shirt aside. Step 8 For the belt, measure your superhero’s waist and add 4". Step 9 Cut one piece of Mud Puddle Duck Tape® in this length, and lay it sticky-side up on your working surface.  Step 10 Cut a second piece of Mud Puddle tape in the same length. Hold this piece sticky-side down, line it up with the first piece and slowly lower it onto the first so that the two pieces are adhered together as evenly as possible. Smooth along the belt to remove wrinkles and trim away any exposed adhesive on the sides. Trim the ends so that they are even.  Step 11 Trace and cut the belt buckle pattern (diagram 3D) out of gray foam. Cut two slots into the buckle (as shown in the pattern) and thread 4" of the belt through the slots. Cut this end of the belt into a point. Step 12 Wrap the belt around your superhero’s waist so that it closes in front. Adhere one set of VELCRO® Brand dots on either side of the buckle, inside where the two ends of the belt overlap. Step 13 To make a pouch for the belt, cut two 4" lengths of tape.  Step 14 Lay one piece horizontally, sticky-side up, in front of you. Then place a second piece vertically, also sticky side up, on top of the first piece. The two pieces together should make a plus sign. Wrap the horizontal tape closed over the vertical tape, creating the sides of the pouch. Wrap the vertical tape closed over the horizontal tape, creating the top and bottom of the pouch. The pouch should measure approximately 2" x 2". Attach to either side of the belt buckle with hot glue. Step 15 Repeat Steps 13-14 to make a second pouch. Step 16 ADULT: Cut two small triangles, each with a 2" wide base, out of the brown felt remnants. Hot glue them upside down at the top of each pouch to make “flaps” for the pouches. Set belt aside. Step 17 Trace and cut the patterns for the Arm Guard: ·        Black Felt: One Arm Guard (diagram 4A) ·        Red Foam: Once knuckle piece (diagram 4B) ·        Silver Glitter Foam: Once hand piece (diagram 4C) ·        Red Foam: Seven wrist pieces (diagram 4D). TIP: Adjust the provided arm guard pattern if necessary so that it will fit your superhero with 1" overlap. Step 18 Assemble arm guard as shown
