Be A Superhero Fabric Panels, Projects & More…

An empowerment project to inspire, encourage and spread love through our creative sewing talents and gifts!

Hello friends, this is Jennifer Long, Bee Sew Inspired. Today I am sharing with you a peek inside my first panel collection – Be A Superhero with Riley Blake Designs. I designed these Be A Superhero Panels to be a wonderful and simple, handmade toy, gift or opportunity to teach children to sew.

When I started designing these panels, I was thinking of ways we could give, thank and inspire all the ordinary superheroes in our everyday lives! Think teachers, nurses, receptionists, caregivers, patients, big brother and sisters… and so much more. Be A Superhero is for ANYONE who needs encouragement or recognition for the extra step they have gone. Do you know someone in your life like this?
