it's a bird... it's a plane.....


 Puking Pastilles:

i was cruising around etsy one day and found this sewing pattern for a superhero cape at your shop.
and i thought, now that's an awesome idea!
a cape for halloween this year and something we can keep for dress-up for years to come.
done and done.
except i don't know how to sew.
i thought about asking one of the grandma's to make it.
i thought about paying my neighbor to make it.
and then i thought, i'll give it a shot.

so i borrowed the neighbor's sewing machine and got to work.
it only took 60 minutes to figure out how to thread the stupid bobbin (and a few muttered naughty words)
but once we got that sorted out we were golden.
like you promised, the pattern was for beginners-
thank you for making it so easy!!

i would never ask you to look closely at the stitches-
there isn't a straight one in sight.
but i think it turned out great.
thanks for the inspiration!

ps. i was hooked by the name "puking pastilles" (huge, huge, HUGE harry potter fan)

So darn cute! I wouldn't have been able to whip up a cape. I can't even sew on a button. So I'm very impressed!
