Superman Surfer Poncho


Last summer I did a tutorial for my Hooded Surfer Poncho.
This summer JT has had several summer birthday parties to go to and
so I thought it would be fun to give them as gifts.
One little friend {LOVES} Superman and
JT and I decided to turn the surfer poncho into a 
Superman surfer poncho.


It just required a couple of addditions
and we had a very Superman-looking surfer poncho.

I bought an extra hand towel for the cape and pinned and sewed it
into the poncho the same time I was sewing in the hood.
I used a wash cloth for the pocket this time
so that I didn't have any unfinished edges to worry about.
I really like how it turned out.
If I had more time I would have liked to have
appliqued an "M" on the back for the little boy's first name
inside the Superman shield.

I hope you like it and that maybe you can use the inspiration
for the Superman loving kid in your life :)
 



I also did a manicure this week,
so I'm linking up to Mani Monday!
Just a glittery french mani to brighten the week :)

Cute idea. . .if only I had a little boy to make this for. I don't know if my daughter would be into it as much.

That is perfect for a day at the pool! My toddler loves to be wrapped up after splashing around and this would cover his head, ears and body. Great idea!
