dinosaur hoodie.

Every kid needs a dinosaur hoodie! These are so easy to whip up! All you need is a hoodie and some felt, and a sewing machine (although you could probably easily do this by hand, it would just take a little bit longer). I had this thrifted hoodie sitting in milo’s closet, and I dug into my felt stash to make the spikes.

I glanced at this tutorial, and then I went to work. You can download a template for the spikes here, or you can just wing it. Fold on a seam, and cut enough spikes to cover the back of your hoodie. ( I ended up using only one sheet of felt for this 3T hoodie)

1. Fold your hoodie in half. You can iron it to make a nice crease – you will be using this as your guide to pin the spikes.
2. Pin the spikes to your hoodie – the middle of the spike should line up with the crease.

3. Once all your spikes are pinned, sew each one down the middle of the spike.
4. Once all your spikes are attached to the hoodie, then fold the spikes in half and sew up the sides of the felt.

Milo decided this summer, he would be nemo for halloween because we were at a garage sale and there was a nemo costume in his size. Its only a few weeks before the big day and he’s still excited to be nemo. So I was kind of wracking my brain trying to figure out what Dj and I would be to accompany nemo….

Shark!

I was also stressing out about when I was going to get to the thrift store because these next few weeks are pretty crazy for me. But behold…I had a hoodie in my closet. Its a good hoodie that I sacrificed, but its a good holiday, and I dont think a little hot glue will hurt anything.

I had the felt too! So basically this costume cost me ZERO DOLLARS to make. MEGASCORE!

coming soon: dj’s crab costume!
