Super Ella

I had a lot of fun making this Super Ella cape and onesie for Ella to wear to a friend's superhero party.  I started with a generic cape and customized it.  First, I traced the letter E and various sized stars on blue and white pieces of felt, cut them out and sewed them on the cape and the onesie with silver thread for some sparkle.  I then hemmed up the cape a bit so that she wouldn't trip on it.  I love it and so does she.  She zipped around the yard and the house and growled.  It brings back so many memories of me as a child proudly wearing my supergirl or wonder woman underoos and fighting over who was going to wear our only red towel as a cape.
