  • 1 large t-shirt

  • On the back of the shirt, trace a straight line from the edge of the collar to the bottom of the shirt on a diagonal.

  • Cut along the lines, but don't cut the collar - this will go around the neck to hold the cape on. Once you get to the collar, just cut along the seam line. Now you have a cape made from the backside of the t-shirt. You can save the front fabric if you want to make a mask.
