I grew to love making Halloween costumes and still do when I get a chance (rarely). This year, the stars aligned and my son asked to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Since he asked me while wearing his green Om home jammies, this one was a no brainer!
|Om home DIY Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume|
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle
Take one Om home Jasper pajama in green
Cut an oval to fit on top of the pajama with yellow fabric
Sew three sides of the yellow fabric onto a fabric backing and fill it with stuffing
Sew the stuffed yellow fabric onto the green top, making sure to include both horizontal and vertical lines across the center
Using orange fabric, cut 3 3" strips and 2 5" strips, about 10" long
(depending on the size of your child)
I folded each piece and used hem tape to iron it together
Cut out the template with both felt and orange fabric.
Spray the orange fabric onto the felt
Sew the straps from the previous step onto each side of the mask
