I am partnering with Reuseit.com for the following review. I received a product in exchange for my review and honest opinion.

With a superhero obsessed brother, I don’t think Amelia stood a chance to escape a world of capes, masks and fighting crime. At least I can help make it a little more colorful and girly. I was inspired to create a no-sew cape after seeing the super cute Lily Rabbit, an eco friendly plush toy from reuseit.com that comes with a cape of her own. They also make a crime fighting frog that is just as adorable. Lily will be going in Amelia’s Easter basket, along with her new dish towel superhero cape.


Dish Towel


No-Sew Permanent Fabric Glue


Stiffened Felt (2 colors)

Flower Embellishment

Hot Glue Gun


Step 1: Wash and iron dish towel. Fold the top of the dish towel 3-4 inches down and iron a seam. You’ll need the pocket to be slightly larger than the width of your ribbon. Glue the very end of the dishtowel down, creating a pocket and thread the ribbon through once the glue dries (as shown in the photo below).

Step 2: Cut the first letter of your child’s name out of felt. Glue down to your second piece of felt and cut around the letter. Glue to the back of the cape and hot glue a flower embellishment onto the letter. Allow to dry.

Step 3: Tie cape around your kiddo and pretend to be super heroes!

Step 4: Snuggle with our new Lily Rabbit super hero eco friendly plush! You can find more eco friendly toys and crafts at Reuseit.com, I’m a personal fan of their reusable shopping bags. You can find Reuseit.com on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Instagram.
