Ninji's Cape and Spidey

You may remember that a while ago, I stitched a little felt ninja. Nathan claimed it for himself and he has surprisingly hung onto it ever since. He takes him to bed at night and occasionally plays with it during the day.

While I was sewing the coasters, Nathan felt it was time for Ninji (yes, that's what he named him) to have a wardrobe update. Since Ninji is a hero, Nathan wanted a cape for Ninji. So he suggested that I make one.

Instead of just cutting out a piece of scrap fabric to the shape of a cape, I thought I might use this opportunity to try out some new techniques. Like making bias tape, adding a trim to the cape, and sewing and turning a fabric tube to make "string" to tie the cape.

The project took a little longer than I had anticipated but Ninji's cape turned out well, if I do say so myself.

Now he looks like a real superhero.

I woke up with a hot feeling in my nose this morning, and for me, that's always followed by a cold. It must have been from yesterday when it dipped down to 8degrees. Apparently this is unusual for Brisbane. Again, we sure picked a good year to come over, eh? Sure enough, as the day went on, my nose got sniffly and I felt disgusting.

Nathan had a Pupil Free day today and normally, I would have just told him to go play while I slept in a little longer. But I haven't been to mom's group in a few weeks now and I had made a last minute play date with one of Nathan's school friends for the afternoon.

So I dragged myself and the two boys all over town today, trying to be as positive and not gross as possible.

At least Spidey here had a good time!
