The hero with the K chevron is my youngest. Her cape and its twin (which belongs to her sometimes best friend) were made from an old skirt and some stash fabric.
The hero with the heart chevron is made from all recycled materials (even the lace).
 
On my daughters blue cape I used the two button plackets for the ties.
On the other capes I cut strips from the sleeves that were triple folded and stitched for the ties.
This cape is going out to my nephew in California who likes the black and pink Super K cape better than K herself does.
Last time he visited he was a superhero, a groom, and a knight using that cape.
To the rescue!!

I recently made four capes using two skirts and two old denim shirts. Two of the capes were given to my youngest daughter's preschool class for their dress-up materials (a few years ago I made them five nearly indestructable fairy wreaths when my oldest was in that class).

The pink and black Super K cape is an older one and includes purchased fabric.
