I am currently making capes very similar to Rere's, except I'm using more gender-neutral fabric (hopefully!) - using bright spotted fabrics for the inner, and space/rockets, and fire-breathing dragons for the outers. I'm using felt for the applique pictures - attaching with Wonder Under, and then zig zag stitching around. I'm using this tutorial (that I found through Sew Mama Sew's blog post about Kids Clothes):
I'd post pics but they aren't done yet! Hopefully this week.

I finished my capes this morning! They are reversible. Two are blue rocket ship fabric on one side and a white mod dot fabric on the other side. Then, the other two are black fire-breathing dragons on one side, and a red mod dot on the other side. I did felt appliques on both sides of the blue/white, but just a shooting star on the dragon one, and nothing on the red side. I ran out of ideas, LOL!
I made a pattern on freezer paper first, then used that to mark out my fabric using a quilting pencil. This was helpful, as opposed to just freehanding it like she says on the tutorial, since I was planning on making four. And now, when I go to make some more eventually, I will already have the pattern and won't have to recreate the wheel again. I measured my two boys, and did a length measurement in between so they could both wear them. I used a rainbow thread for the top stitching on the black dragons and it turned out great. The rainbow thread just looks really cool.
