Super mom makes super heroes


SEATTLE (WKOW) -- Not everyone would consider sewing a super power, but for Robyn Rosenberger it's her skill with a needle and thread that's creating super heroes around the world.

Robyn sewed super hero capes for her son, her nephew and her dog when she realized she could share her talent with those who needed it the most - sick children.

"It was just like an ah-ha moment," Robyn said. "This little girl named Brenna needed one too."

Brenna was battling a rare skin disorder, so Robyn sewed her a cape with a big yellow "B" and Super Brenna was born.

Word caught on and in just six months Robyn has sent 700 personalized capes to sick children in 45 states and 11 countries. She now gets 10 to 20 requests for capes a day. She's quit her job and has pulled in friends to help.

"If you would have told me six months ago that this would be my life, I would have paid $1 million to make this my life," Robyn said. "But I wouldn't believe you."
