Super Jack!

I was searching online one day... at ETSY specifically, for ideas on how to decorate "capes" for a lady at work, who handed the job to me, because she heard I was the creative one. 
Well, needless to say, I found the cutest cape at Pip and Bean, and wished I was a kid again!

Since I couldn't really get the cape for myself, I thought the next perfect recipient would be 
my 2 1/2 year old nephew, Jack! 

I was so excited to give it to him! 

And He was so excited to get it... sorta... 
We had to go over his new "super powers" when he has it on! 
He's a huge "Bucky" fan - it's genetic!

Then he had to make sure everyone saw it was a "Bucky" Cape.
(If you don't understand "Bucky," that is Jack's way of referring to 
The Ohio State University - Buckeyes)

Then we worked on "flying!"

He's totally got it down! 

I'm positive it's his new favorite accessory... well, when he wants to fly anyways! 

Now, after I received the cape and gifted it to my adorable nephew, my best friend, Christina, totally wanted one! The only problem was, the etsy shop I found it on, doesn't make the cape she so desires! 
Okay, I should make things clear, she didn't want it for herself, but for her boyfriends little (monkey) boy, and the cape he would want to tote would not be that of OSU, but of Tennessee (boo!). 
Her first idea was then to ask my mom (not me, because she knows I'm too crazy busy, and my mom rocks) to hook her up!
Let's see how that is going:

Oh, I see the "T" on the table to be added soon! 

(My mom doesn't always where dresses with her capes, she had a wedding to attend today!
But I do love how the cape is so "un-purposefully" hiding her face!)

Hopefully it turns out great and there is one more Super Powered Flying boy out there soon! We are surely going to make more of these... and maybe a tutorial will take place! 
You up for that mom? :)

My head was NOT to be in the pic.Hair wasn't brushed, oh well. The T will be orange with a black outline. White T is what I made as a pattern.
