Make An Upcycled Superhero Cape

Jennifer from Craft Forest shows us how to make an upcycled superhero cape from a t-shirt in this video.  It’s really quick and simple to do and there’s no sewing required in this project.

As Jennifer says this would be such a fun activity for a kids party!  Please do cut the collar open and install velcro fasteners, to avoid any risk of choking or strangulation, should the cape get caught on something.


The materials and equipment need to make an upcycled superhero cape are shown below.

  • T-shirt (larger size works best)
  • Contrasting felt or fabric for the logo
  • Heat’n bond or bonadweb
  • Stick on velcro fastner
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Ironing board
