A few years ago I got Evie a superhero cape from a seller on Etsy and Mira got her own for Christmas. I had been wanting to make them accessories for awhile but it always managed to get put aside because of another project I wanted to do. So when Chelsea from GYCT Designs said she was organizing a Make Believe Week, I knew I was on board! Sometimes the only way for me to get ideas for projects done is to sign up for swaps or blog hops so I have more of an “assignment” mindset.
Since I already had the capes I made matching wristguards, belts, and masks. I didn’t think I could easily match the colors of the cape itself, especially since it’s a different material, so I decided to use the color of the design on the back. As always, I ordered my felt from Benzie on Etsy and I got 12×18 sheets of red and pink which was more than enough to make the belt, mask, and both wristguards and then 6×9 sheets for the accent colors. I used this listing here, just indicate that you want 4 of whatever base color you are going to use and they will send it as a 12×18 sheet!
These are great because you can make them as simple or as complicated as you want with any embroidery or embellishments. I mimicked the designs from their capes, but you could really do anything!
I made the wristguards bigger and sewed Velcro so they have a bit of room to grow. The belt has a wide strip of elastic and the mask has a small elastic cord.
I have put all the templates together into a PDF for you. These sizes worked for both Mira and Evie’s, but you could make them bigger or smaller if necessary. For the belt I added a couple extra inches of felt to each side after I measured their waists.
