I had this brilliant idea this summer and it worked! Woot! (Don't you love it when an great idea really works out?)
I went to Target and purchased the cheap tea towels (4 or 6 towels for $3.99). I purchased enough for every student in my class. I dyed them with Rit Dye in the washing machine.
My pile of tea towels.
I wrote “Happy Birthday” using a fabric paint pen. Then I let the birthday child write their name and decorate the cape with fabric pastels.
I just love the details the birthday child added!! So sweet!
Ta da! Beautiful! (Shhh! I did not sew anything. I just tied it in the front and voila! An old fashion cape! The photo cannot do this justice. It is endearing!
Simple, easy, yes!
What a great idea!
Love this idea! How simple and what a wonderful keepsake.
