We decided female superheros really were not all that suitable for a nursery dress up (think Cat Woman, Wonder Woman- the only time I see these outfits they are donned by hot looking young women) so we moved on to our own little creation: 'Super Lily'.
We got some fabric from the local store, 1 meter for £3.50. I don't know what's good and what's not so good when it comes to fabric because I've only just started being a crafty type but I look forward to comparing! I went for a rather cute design so when the day was over I could use the 'cape' again for a pillow, some hearts whatever I fancy doing at a later date.
So, being not ready to brave my sewing machine everything I embark on at this present moment in time is hand stitched! If I knew how to work my machine (passed down so no bloody manual!!) I would've made this fabric nice and neat after cutting it, you know, give it a nice folded hem but sod that with hand sewing!
A bit of face paint later and the transformation was complete! There was no way she would've kept a mask on so I figured painting one was a good idea and how many children don't like a bit of face painting? I'm 22 and I still wouldn't mind it!
