I made a "Super Sam" shirt for my nephew's birthday. I appliquéd the star and S on the front (a first for me), added some ribbon trim and a cape that velcros to the shoulders.
I got the idea from a post over at Cool Mom Picks (which I love). In April, they posted about Little Capers, a company that makes really cool super hero t-shirts with capes. So very cute. If you aren't into sewing and your kid is over the whole bath towel-as-cape look, this is the place to go. Anyway, Sam seems to like it. Yay!
The long dog was a bigger hit. He got loaded with hugs and kisses as soon as he was pulled from the box. My sister said Sam named him "Polkadot."
