A sewing funk? Yep, I'm definitely in one of those. It is taking me forever to finish anything these days. But, this project was quick and satisfying - superhero capes! My friend, JoAnn, invited me and Chris to the auction for her daughter's kindergarten. It looks like a super fun time, but we'll be out of town for the big event. So, I offered to make a couple of superhero capes for the auction to show my support.
Look at those two! Don't even ask me about the bribery I had to use to get them to stand there so still.
It is difficult to see the lining of the boy's cape - it is an orange-yellow-blue-green stripe (you can see it peeking out of the bottom a bit). Charlie was so enamored by this cape, but understood that it was for "chairdee" and helped me fold it up and place it into a bag after he modeled it for me. The blue butterfly lining of the girl's cape is my new favorite. If you click on the picture you should be able to see the detail - so cute!
I've been tossing the idea around in my head about starting an Etsy shop. I'm thinking that I would start small with made-to-order superhero capes. Here's my big question for you: How much would I charge for one of these little numbers? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
Tomorrow we're off to Chicago for a couple of weeks. I plan to do some "on-location" sewing, though - especially because my mom wants to practice with her new machine. Wish us luck on the airplane - we'll need it!
