So – technically 2012 will mark Rhett’s second Comic Con experience. However, since he was barely 2 months old for the first one, we decided to make this year his first major “super hero party” milestone – an occasion that clearlycalls for a baby Spider Man costume.
I found this rad spider web fabric on my last trip to Switzerland – the perfect thing for creating a simple super baby cape. (Yes, I do realize Spider Man doesn’t actually wear a cape … we’re exercising some creative liberties here.)
Since Rhett is still young, I decided to attach the cape via velcro on the back of his shirt – zero choking hazard and less chance for him to try to pull it off himself if he gets bored.
I’m fairly certain the mask will never be worn for more than a millisecond, but still – it was worth a try.
All in all, a super cute craft project perfect for my little Spider Baby (who often makes me wish I had 8 arms to wrangle him with).
PS: Have I mentioned recently how much I love my sewing/embroidery machine (and super heroes)?
