How to Make a Superhero Costume

BAM! Soar to new heights and fight crime during play time with this superhero costume! No hero is complete without his insignia and trusty cape, and with supplies from Pat Catan's, you can create the no-sew Halloween ensemble in no time.

You can find the Superhero costume template right here!
  • 1 Create the cape's pattern

    Use the suphero cape template and cut it out using the costume satin.

  • 2 Add tape to the cape

    Hot glue single fold bias tape all around the edge of the satin cape by folding the bias tape in half and gluing one half of it onto each side of the cape. This will capture the edge of the cape between the folded tape, only a few inches at a time.

  • 3 Attach Velcro┬«

    Glue on Velcro® strips at each end of the collar straps.

  • 4 Attach the superhero's insginia

    Cut out a stiff felt shape that is 1/2" larger than the outside of the superhero applique and glue the applique to the center of the felt shape. Glue the felt shape onto the upper center of the front of the t-shirt.
