FREE Super Hero Cape Logo Patterns

in Crafts,Patterns,Sewing,Tutorials

Remember the super hero capes from Christmas last year?

I’ve had tons of requests for my logo patterns so I’ve included them all below in PDFs for FREE!

Captain America
Green Lantern

Each pattern piece says what color it should be and has other basic instructions like whether it’s cut on the fold, etc. A few of the Captain America circle pieces are to be cut on a double fold which means you fold the fabric in half one way and then in half the other way so there are two folds.

And I just posted my cape pattern as well, so get busy girls!

Thank you Soooooo much for sharing these and even more so for making them free. My boys are going to be so happy!

2 Dona Reynolds November 21, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Thank you so much for these. I sew specifically for a crisis nursery and the children’s hospital and they will love pillows with these on them!

Hello. I saw these and am going to be making them for my boys! I am a novice and have a question that may be considered silly. I understand the pattern for the super hero symbols, but what about the actual cape? How is that cut out?

4 Kelsey Norwood November 24, 2012 at 9:33 pm

I’m working on posting that pattern. Hopefully next week so check back!

5 Trish November 28, 2012 at 1:15 pm

What kind of fabric do you use for capes?

6 Carrie November 29, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Hi, I am planning to make these awesome capes for my boys, thanks for the pattern! But I have a question and maybe I just missed it, but how much material do I need to cut for these patterns?

7 Kelsey Norwood November 30, 2012 at 11:39 am

For the cape you need less than a yard, about 2/3 I think. I think I used scraps for the logos, I can’t remember! You’ll have large scrap after you cut the cape out, big enough to do any of the logos I think, just make sure you have all the right colors. GOod luck!

8 Kelsey Norwood November 30, 2012 at 11:41 am

For these I used broadcloth and regular cotton.

9 Katie December 2, 2012 at 11:14 am

Love this idea! Thanks for sharing!! My five kids (including my 13yr old daughter) are totally superhero crazy. So just wondering do you have any plans to include any girl capes?

10 Kelsey Norwood December 3, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Not anytime soon…I only have sons. I wish I had a reason to do all kinds of girly things!!

11 Denise December 12, 2012 at 2:26 am

do you line your capes?

12 Kelsey Norwood December 12, 2012 at 10:25 am

Nope, just a single layer of cotton works just great!

13 Christina December 12, 2012 at 5:35 pm

THANK YOU for sharing!!!! I can’t wait to make some for Christmas!

14 Christina December 12, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Can you tell us right off how much fabric is needed for the basic cape? Thanks. :)

15 Christina December 12, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Nevermind, I just read the answer above ;)

16 Kelsey Norwood December 13, 2012 at 12:00 am

I think it was 2/3 yard so get a yard and you’ll have plenty! Or print out the pattern and measure if you want the measurement down to the inch. Have fun!

17 Ann December 13, 2012 at 1:06 pm

I just love these. I made four exactly like yours (although my husband gave me hard time over Superman’s not being red…I tried to explain to him that it that the blue was “representing” the suit…:) I had one problem. I used Heat n Bond, as you suggested, but it gummed up my needle and made it impossible to sew. Did you have this problem and if not, what did I do wrong??? Thanks, Ann

18 Kelsey Norwood December 13, 2012 at 2:19 pm

I sew with HeatNBond all the time and I’ve never had that problem – I’m not sure why you would…I buy the lightweight kind, is that what you were using? I’m so glad you made all 4!

19 denise December 16, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Your cape & logo pattern made perfect Christmas gifts for my 4 year old son. Thank you – Thank you – Thank you.
Picture of the finished cape product is here:

Once again thank you :-)
Signed one happy mom

20 Margaret December 28, 2012 at 4:39 pm

Thank you so much! I cannot wait to make these for my boys!!!

21 Denise Hazelton December 31, 2012 at 10:55 pm

How did you do the hem around the whole cape? And did you just sew the logo on?

22 Kelsey Norwood January 1, 2013 at 4:19 pm

I serged the edge of the cape, I didn’t do an actual hem. And I applied the logo to the cape with Heat-n-Bond to make it stick and then sewed all around the edges.

23 Doreen March 3, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Are the patterns one size fits most?? Or how do you determine size, my grandson is a size 7/8.

24 Kelsey Norwood March 6, 2013 at 1:58 pm

This is as big as possible using 44″ wide fabric. I think it will be fine for a 7/8 year old.

25 Patty McGill April 6, 2013 at 8:57 pm

You are so kind & generous to share the Batman Cape pattern. I searched all over the internet for a pattern & then thankfully found yours. A friend wants me to make one for her grandson. I’ve made Superman capes but no Batman, so it was wonderful to find your pattern.

Thank you very much for sharing. Warmest regards, Patty

26 Gracie Loebler April 23, 2013 at 12:25 pm

My daughter is making a super hero room for my 4-year old grandson. These patterns are wonderful! Grandma has a lot of work to do!!

27 Vicky May 26, 2013 at 1:34 am

Hi, just wanted to say a very big thank you for your fabulous tutorial. I am trying to put together an imaginative dressing up box for a school in the UK to use during playtimes and your capes and masks will be a huge hit, I am sure!
Thank you so much for sharing!

28 maria June 21, 2013 at 9:24 am

36 Robyn November 2, 2013 at 3:30 pm

So glad I found these for our 4th superhero party! I’ve been looking for the actual logos. Any ideas or tips on how to shrink your pattern down? I need the logo to be a little smaller as I am hoping to use adhesive backed felt as a shortcut :) Very cute!

37 Alison December 7, 2013 at 3:00 am

Fantastic my grandson will love theses, he’s mad on superheroes !!! X

38 Tiffany December 31, 2013 at 8:06 pm

I loved these. I make two sets for my boys and my neice and nephew. I loved them so much, that I made a Flash cape so there would be an even number for present. (Three each for four kids!) My husband also loved them and started looking up superhero logos for us to make. I’m going to make them at least one new cape each, for each Christmas. Thanks for posting, and making it free!

39 Janelle January 30, 2014 at 11:16 pm

This is so wonderful! Thanks so much! I will have a happy boy!

40 Mieke February 16, 2014 at 1:35 am

Thank you so much for sharing this. My nephews love their capes!

41 Dorothy April 24, 2014 at 4:22 pm

Thanks for sharing :) . Just wondering if you’ve got a wonder woman one? As I’m doing a superhero theme for my son 1st birthday .

42 Becky May 10, 2014 at 5:46 am

I just wanted to say thank you for this. Our swim team is doing a swim-a-thon fundraiser with a Super Hero theme. Any swimmer that completes 100 laps will receive a gold super hero cape. I am so excited to make these for the fundraiser! THANK YOU FOR THE PATTERNS !!

43 Pamela May 16, 2014 at 10:39 pm

44 pam July 2, 2014 at 8:05 am

Thank you for the tutorial :D

45 Cristina marks July 23, 2014 at 7:54 am

I am trying to do these cape for my grandson, we live in South Africa and we are limited to fabric and colours. I found poly cotton, would that work for the cape or would it be too thin?
Kind regards

46 Kelsey Norwood August 2, 2014 at 12:49 pm

Poly Cotton is fine, I think some of mine were.

47 holly November 13, 2014 at 7:28 am

These are awesome! Thank you so much!!

48 Emily March 7, 2015 at 11:20 am

Thanks so much for this! This is such a great help to making gifts on a budget. Best wishes to you!

49 Wendy May 6, 2015 at 2:51 pm

Thank you for putting these ‘out there’!
We’re having a Superheros holiday club at our church and thought these will be great for the children from our community.

50 Jessica Bixler November 13, 2015 at 11:13 am

Hi THanks for the pattern and logos. How do you enlarge the logos to fit the cape pattern? I am just starting my grandson’s Christmas dress-ups! He is just 20 months and want him to have tons of creative play outfits! THanks, J

51 joan schofield March 4, 2016 at 1:36 pm

I love these! I just printed off the superman one for an apron! You saved me!
