Need a Halloween Costume? Here’s A Cute One You Can Make!
I hope you’re not tired of hearing me say how much I love sewing. Because here I go again.
The other day I saw this tutorial online and immediately knew what costume my youngest son would be wearing for Halloween this year: Stitch!
This is the cutest little costume and it made him so happy when he saw it for the first time. I think it’s going to be his favorite, ever.
So, if you want to make one for your own little guy (or girl) here are the supplies you’ll need:
1 yard of blue fleece fabric (you can also use sweatshirt fleece)
1/2 yard of white fleece fabric (for the tummy)
6″ x 6″ piece of black felt (for the mouth)
1 yard of 1/4″ elastic
Optional: faux fur if you want to make ears like mine! (I purchased this at Jo-Ann Fabrics.)
Need a last minute Halloween costume? Well, you’re in luck! This blog post will show you how to make your own awesome DIY Stitch costume. It’s cute and easy.
Start by securing a blue hoodie. You can either buy one or use one you already have. If you already have a blue hoodie, just skip this step and move onto the next one!
Next, you’ll need to find an inexpensive pair of pants that are also blue. If you can’t find any inexpensive ones, check out your local thrift store.
Next, add on some buttons and pockets to the hoodie to make it look more like Stitch’s fur. You can do this with glue or other adhesive materials.
Now for the ears! To make these, simply cut out some triangle shapes from cardboard and paint them blue. Once they dry, attach them to a headband with hot glue or another adhesive material.”
I’ve been doing Halloween costumes for my kids since they were born. This year was a special year because we were short on time and needed a quick and easy costume. A few weeks ago I made this super simple and adorable Stitch costume. I thought I would share it here in case anyone else needs a super fast costume idea!
Here’s what you need:
1. White shirt (we got one from the dollar store)
2. Blue pants or jeans (we have tons of blue pants)
3. Felt or fabric for ears (we got felt at Michaels for about $3 total)
4. Glue gun or fabric glue (we use a glue gun because it’s faster)
6. Headband (a plain one from the dollar store worked great)
7. Sharpie Marker or paint for eyes (the marker worked great for us)
8. Optional: white gloves, tail, shoes with black bottoms, etc…but this is not necessary to make this costume look great!
Halloween is a fun holiday for kids of all ages. Sadly, I don’t have any little ones to dress up this year, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a little fun with it. So, I made a Stitch costume.
I was so excited to find the perfect blue fabric at Walmart. It was on clearance and only cost $1! (It was meant to be.) The pattern I used was Simplicity Pattern
I’m going to share with you how I made this Stitch costume and how you can make it too.
I was inspired by the DIY Stitch Costume on instructables.com, but I wanted to make it a little shorter and fancier. Let’s get started.
You will need:
1-2 yards of blue fleece (depending on size)
5-6 sheets of craft foam (depending on size)
4 plastic hair combs
1 package of sparkly pom poms/trim (I used pom pom trim from Walmart)
2 sheets of white felt (for the eyes)
1 sheet of black felt (for the mouth)
Hot glue gun + hot glue sticks
In the last week of September, I was in a bit of a panic. My 2-year-old had a school Halloween party the first week of October and I needed to have a costume ready for him.
I decided on Stitch, because I love him and he is my favorite character. He’s also super cute, which is always important for little kids.
I started out by looking online for ideas and patterns, but I couldn’t find anything that was exactly what I wanted for my son’s costume. So, I basically combined ideas from two different sites and created my own pattern.
I ended up making it from fleece and felt and using velcro to attach the arms and legs so it could easily be taken on and off. He absolutely loved wearing it!
Here are some pictures of it:
I made this Lilo and Stitch costume for my daughter, who was 2 1/2 at the time. She loves the movie and would watch it over and over again, so when it came time to decide on a costume I knew she wouldn’t hesitate on her decision. She’s such a ham, too. She loved wearing the costume and getting lots of attention.
The hardest part of making this costume was probably defining the exact shape of Stitch’s head and then figuring out a way to make it move up and down without it falling off her head. I ended up using some scrap pieces of cardboard that I cut to fit her head and then hot glued some scrap fabric around them. Then I used some wire hangers (the kind they give you in hotels) to connect the two pieces together. A second piece of cardboard at the bottom helped keep them from swinging around too much and gave me another place to secure them together with duct tape.
Then I got working on making all of his little spots, like where his ears are. The ears are made from pipe cleaners covered with black felt, which were attached with hot glue after being sewn onto the blue bodysuit. The other little spots were just scraps of black felt that I sewed onto the
