Captainess America: The Third Baby-venger

The number of times my husband and I go to the movies is inversely related to the number of kids we have (I told you I like math).  For those non-mathematicians out there – we have three kids. We don’t go to the movies, like, ever.  But today…today…

Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out!

And, we will be going to see it. In a real movie theater. With no kids. I cannot wait!!

So to celebrate, I’ve dressed up my baby:


{Siblings, assemble!}


{I’m loyal to nothing, Mom… except Milk.}


{Give me milk now, or I will not be responsible for what comes next!}

Did you catch those Captain America quotes? 😉

The headband was made with scraps of red felt, white knit, and blue knit and soft elastic. I wanted to use all felt, but didn’t want to buy anything extra and that’s what I had on hand. I simply hot glued the pieces to each other.


The skirt is a simple circle skirt using MADE’s tutorial, but instead of a circle, I just left it as a square. Red stripe knit fabric is from Hancock Fabrics.


The bodysuit was purchased pre-made (40% off at Hobby Lobby) and I reversed appliqued a white knit star to the middle.


The total look cost $4.81 and took about an hour and 15 minutes.

Have a great weekend!
