Superhero Pillow

My 2 grandsons like Super heros and when I found this fabric on clearance I bought it knowing that I would find some use for it for the boys.  Both boys like to watch tv laying on the floor so I made them each an 18″ pillow.  I cut this fabric 18 1/2″ square and 2 pieces of a backing fabric the same size.  Then I folded the two backing pieces down about 6″ and overlapping the backing pieces, put the front and back pieces together right sides together and sew with a 1/4″ seam. 

Super Hero Composition Notebook Cover

My grandsons like to draw and write so I made a super hero cover for a composition notebook.  First I sewed some scraps of fabric together and placed it on light batting and used some decorative stitches on my machine to put them together.  Then I took the composition book opened out wide and traced the book on the back side of the fabric and batting. 

Super Hero Capes

This was a service project that my quilt group made for a local hospital.  There are kids going through cancer treatments who don’t have many choices of things to do so we tried to give them something fun to wear.  They are truly super heros.  This was a free pattern from a website called Sewing with Nancy Zieman.  It gives easy to follow instructions.
