Few weeks ago we had a Batman photo opp, and I could not help myself making Momo a new costume...
Momo has become the BAT GIRL!!!
She can fly like a bat!
She is very strong!
I am having too much fun with those pictures ;)
The shirt and the tutu are store-bought. I needed something in black, and those are all Momo had. I did not plan it, but I am loving the polka-dot superhero :)
The mask was made using this template: DIY Batman Mask, and the size was just perfect for Momo. I was going to use a foam sheet for the mask as the tutorial suggests, but I went to Jo-Ann's and started to look at the fabrics first, I forgot about buying the foam sheet completely ;o
So I made the mask using the black felt I had at home. I only had the black felt with glitters, but turned out black glitter felt makes very cute mask for the bat girl :)
I have seen superhero capes made with felt, and I liked that idea because it cut down sewing time. This was needed to be a quick project, as I did not have hours to spend on sewing. I went with fleece, because I thought fleece would drapes better than felt. I got 1 yard of the cheapest fleece, since the better quality fleece is heavier. I put the fleece around Momo and cut it into cape-shape. I used yellow cotton I had in my stash and appliqued the batman logo. Ribbon at the neck would have been cuter, but I went with Velcro because I wanted Momo to be able to wear this anytime on her own.
Linking up to those fun parties.
