How do I make a Super Hero cape for my 5 yr old grandson? He's expecting me to do this today! All I have are old pillowcases. No machine!

And maybe an old sheet. I might add--- I always have been a horrible sewer. Help!

Use an old tshirt. I saw this on Pinterest. Leave the neck and back attached and cut from the sides to the front away.

A five year old should be allowed to live his fantasy. In no time at all the system will find a way to squash his dreams, by regulating his environment.

Head over to Kmart or Wal*Mart. visit the bedding section. Fashion a superhero pillowcase into a full blown costume.
