When he was a little boy, growing up surrounded by sisters,
I was often at a loss what to do for him. I could think of all kinds of hair accessories, toys, clothing etc to make for my girls, but not too much for my boy. Fortunately, my sister had almost as many sons as I had daughters, and she had lots of ideas for boy-type crafts. One year for Christmas she sent a very clever gift she had made - a reversible super hero cape, with Superman on one side and Batman on the other. He didn't seem to have a favorite... one day he'd be Superman, the next Batman. But he loved the cape and wore it as often as he could, until he outgrew it and moved on to other pursuits.
A little while ago, I was thinking about my son as a little boy, and my wonderful grandson who lives so far away from me, and I decided to make E a cape like his uncle had. I did a quick search and found just the pattern I needed at Puking Pastilles, and this is what I ended up with...
As you can see, I wasted my time making it reversible.
