Easy No-Sew Superhero Capes

Pillow cases to capes. Let your imagination soar!


Materials:

  • pillow case

  • scissors

  • paint and brushes

  • glitter

  • white glue

  • painters tape

Step 1

Cut your pillow case in half, that will allow you get two capes from one pillow case. Fold the pillow case in two, then cut a straight line to make the hole for the head (do not go straight to the edge). Secure the cut with a knot on each end of the pillow case. If you skip this part, the pillow case will tear.


Step 2

Lay your pillow case on a flat surface and begin your design. Start applying tape in the upper middle part of the cape. Make sure the tape is firmly pushed down on the fabric so when you paint you get nice clean lines.


Step 3

Place scrap paper under your design before painting to protect your table or floor from the paint that soaks through. Once you have finished and are happy with the colour, then you can use your white glue for your sparkle design! After applying the sparkle over the white glue, let it dry for at least an hour. We laid ours flat outdoors to decrease the drying time.


Step 4

Peel off the tape and enjoy!!
