Today is Super Girl Day! The girls are encouraged to dress up like super heros. She wanted to be Super Tree Girl so brown pants, green shirt and of course a super girl cape! There was no fighting this super hero on the fact that today it will be 105 degrees and pants may not be the best idea! She is a tree and trees are brown so long pants it was!
I decided to whip up a Super Girl pink cape for her yesterday while she was gone! The challenge was fabric. I headed to Savers to see what I could find! Success, the sleepwear aisle had ample choices. I found a perfect pink satin robe for just $1.99! Score!
All I did was cut the back panel out and sewed a simple rolled edge. I am not a great seamstress so it may not be pretty but the finished project is awesome and the girl (and the boy too) love it! I guess we will be heading back to the thrift store to find a blue or red robe or night gown so I can make one for the boy too! In the mean time, he is running around with the pink one - just don't tell his sister (or his Dad)!!!
