Super Capes

 Almost a year ago I made a purple and pink supergirl cape for Ellie.  I finally got around to making a pirate cape for Gavin.
This is the receiving blanket I posted a couple of days ago.  I didn't like how bland it was with just black and white fabrics.  I was going to unpick the whole edge and add red piping.  Nina Lise and Vreni both suggested I just add something on top and not have to pick out all those threads.  I found some red rick rack and now it has so much more personality.  Love it now!  Thanks for the suggestions.

Happy Quilting!               Lynda

What cute capes, and models.

Adding red rick-rack has made all the difference, and all without having to unsew anything.

I agree, the rick rack really makes a huge difference. Lovely! And your grand son's cape is great and he's a cutie. I can't believe he's already so big. I remember when you first posted pictures of him just after he was born. Is your daughter and her family still living with you?
