This was a fun and simple upcycle morning project: superhero shirt and cape for beloved Puppy Dog.
With BOYS in mind, check out Dana's "Celebrate the Boy" in February at MADE. She rocks.
I had cut off some superhero pj's the kids had gotten for Daddy, so they were perfect for this project.
I used the bottom hem of the pants for the bottom of the shirt, sewed a line up for the shirt sides and across for the bottom arm holes. Then I sewed a top line for the top arm seam. I left the shirt sleeves and neck hole with a raw edge *gotta love knit. Then he called for a cape. I just cut a piece with ties attached = no sewing.
And well received! This picture makes me smile. I will be sad when Puppy Dog is on the shelf. (and no, he didn't come with a button nose...he's had a nose job because of some intense love)
Speaking of toys on shelves, has anyone seen Toy Story 3 and about cried at the end? Well done (again) and sad to see a goodbye to toys and little boys.
And then there was a baby that decided she needed a cape, too. Just to fit in. :)
