Handmade capes per the pattern below.
Pattern Instructions: The measurements in the pattern fit a smaller child, but for children age 5-8 yrs, I would add 6-8" to the length of the cape.

(update on pattern instructions: please feel free to place a fabric with a pattern on the outside of cape and a solid fabric on the inside)

Capes for Kids represents hope. Since every cape is unique and handmade with love, each child who receives one will feel their own superpowers, and know that they have the strength and ability to create whatever they want for their lives.
Sending Hope, Faith, and Love to Children Living in Shelters Across the Country.
As children, we often play “dress up”. But beyond just having fun, the clothing or costumes we put on our body send us a message.
Many children play “Superhero” because the messages that Superheroes “save the day” is everywhere, but Enchanted Makeovers believes it’s not about calling on “superman” or “supergirl” to swoop in.
It's about calling on our own strength, from within, that we never knew we had.
It’s about the power of our minds, tapping into our imaginations.
It's about putting on our daily armor and believing in ourselves.
When our programs were being developed, the goal was to teach the children life skills as well as coping skills. The power of imagination is infused throughout. As Dr.Victor Frankl, the author of Man’s Search for Meaning pointed out, when you can imagine survival, you will survive. For the children, the “Capes for Kids” program ignites the imagination and creativity.
