Superhero Cape

Every year Santa Barbara has a Summer Solstice Parade. This balloon at the end of the parade reminded me of the following books. Barefoot Books- LadyD is participating in Mellow Yellow Monday.

There's another book I picked up from our local library from the Dial Easy - To - Read Level 3 series, Oliver The Mighty Pig by Jean Van Leeuwen. Darling book about a family who loves Oliver, whether he is wearing his cape or not.

"Who has a long red cape and is able to fly? Mighty Pig, of course!"

I'm planning on making some cool capes for my grandsons and granddaughter. It's been awhile since I made a Superman cape for my son.  I was wondering if you had sewn a cape before and if so, what type of fabric did you use? I suppose anything from silk to a bath towel or bed sheet would be fun to hold onto and run around with! lol
