What Can Make A Kid Feel “Super”?

Nothing makes a kid feel more “super” than a handmade custom superhero cape! Based on this premise, Kiss The Toad Creations has made it their mission to present children with life threatening illnesses a cape of their own to recognize these children’s super strength. Kiss The Toad Creations recently organized an event where volunteers sewed capes for the children who were directly affected by the terrible tornado in Oklahoma City (read more here). Visit Kiss The Toad Creations at the official website.

You can use your super sewing powers to make a kid you know feel super! Stitch a simple cape out of any color fabric, or add a custom appliqué or machine embroidered symbol for that very special superhero (like a favorite animal or bug, a big letter, or a monogram). We’ve gathered a few tutorials from around the web to get your creative caped crusader juices flowing!
