Because you can run faster in a cape

Posted on

Somehow Clark got into his head last night that he needed a cape. He was racing about the house with a blanket and asked if I would make him one. I said yes. We had a rough night of sickness-coughing and crying and so on, so you can imagine my surprise when he woke me up in the morning by saying, “Hey mom, did you make my cape yet?” Um, no.  We got up and what else did I have to do at 7am but make him a cape? He chose this train fabric and I added red panels to make it wide enough. The C and its background are both felt and sewed on with a zigzag stitch. I’m quite thrilled with how it came out, but need to add velcro so he can secure the ties himself (snaps are  verboten for him). Not bad for made before breakfast!

Racing by at the speed of light…


About Sarah

I'm a librarian living with my lovely family in a gorgeous spot of New Jersey, where we raise chickens and love the outdoors. I try to find enough time to indulge all my hobbies-cooking, photography, gardening, sewing, and I write about it all on my book blog & personal blog.

  1. Sweet! I love that he thought you magically made it overnight – such faith!

  2. You need a cape yourself for sewing that before breakfast!
