Superhero Cape with Cricut Joy

Hello!  My last post of the year, with something that I made Emily for Christmas!  She had been using an old muslin as a superhero cape, so I decided to make her a nice one!

It was made using things I already had in stash, which was satisfying.  I used two pink cotton fat quarters - one for the front and one to line it.  Emily is a big fan of pink, which is why I chose that colour!  Some pink ribbon is used for the tie.

Then came the fun part...

I used the Cricut Joy to cut out SUPER EMILY, a lightning bolt, and some stars from smart glitter iron-on vinyl.  I hadn't yet tried using iron-on vinyl, but it went very well - I love the result!  It is so lovely and glittery in real-life too, but hard to capture the true sparkle on camera.

Emily seems happy with her cape!

It feels lovely to give her presents that I have made myself!

Tomorrow is the start of 2023 - I hope that I will be back soon with a lot more crafty makes!  2022 was far too sparse on the creativity!
