Batman is one of the most popular of comic book heroes, and his popularity has only increased with recent movies. My little guy doesn’t read comic books yet, but is familiar with the Lego Batman, so he was thrilled to get his own costume!
I’ve included instructions and printable pattern pieces for the cape, mask, and belt. The cape is sewn from any lightweight woven fabric. If you are feeling adventurous, find something shiny, or use broadcloth or cotton for an easier sew. The cape has the iconic scallops along the bottom edge and ties at the neck with bias tape. As always, only use the cape under supervision as the ties can be a choking hazard.
The mask and the belt are sewn from either fleece or felt. The advantage of these materials is that they don’t fray so you don’t have to finish the raw edges.
The pattern is sized for children ages 2-5. I sewed my son a grey long sleeved tee and leggings to go with the costume, but you can always purchase these if you are running short of time.
