Stuffie Superhero Capes

stuffed animal cape felt for kids diy

Who was your child’s first best friend? Before playdates and string bracelets, kids find love and companionship in their stuffed animals—a playmate, a shoulder to cry on, and a superhero all wrapped into one.

If you are in the NYC area, please join me on Saturday, January 19th at the Museum of the City of New York to celebrate the exhibition, A City for Corduroy: Don Freeman’s New York. The classic story celebrates the bond between a girl and her bear, who through her eyes, is perfect just as he is. We will be making superhero capes for your kids’ favorite lovies (stuffed animals are welcome too!).
