felt superhero cape

Here’s a great project for anyone – small or large – who aspires to become a hero. Just cut your felt to size and add a yarn tie at the collar. That’s it! Now you’re ready to head off on heroic adventures. BAM! POW! Don’t forget to protect your super-secret identity with a mask!
Step 1
First, shape this cape so that it’s the right size! Trim away several inches on one side of the felt sheet, so that it’s not quite so wide. Trim the bottom width, too, to shorten the cape by a few inches (or more, if you need to). Then, trim along the length on both sides, cutting at a slight angle so that the cape’s top edge is narrower than the bottom edge, just like a real hero’s. 
Step 2
Create a collar for the cape by folding down the top (narrower) edge about 2'. 
Step 3
ADULT: Use the Crop-A-Dile™ tool to punch holes across the folded part of the collar. 
Step 4
Almost done! Cut a piece of yarn that’s about a yard long. String it through the holes so that it runs beneath the collar. Make sure there’s plenty of yarn sticking out at either end, so that you can tie the cape over your shoulders. Ok, hero – time to get to work!
