Big Bad Wolf Hoodie Costume
Source: The Martha Stewart Show, October 2008
Embrace the charm of the classic storybook character with this easy-to-make hoodie costume.
Print wolf templates on heavyweight paper. Cut out paper templates. Trace templates onto felt that coordinates with the colors of the template, and cut pieces from felt.
Tip: Use double-sided tape to temporarily hold templates onto felt as you trace.
To make ears, fold a brown pipe cleaner to create a triangle with 3 1/2-inch sides, and a 2 1/2-inch base. Twist the ends of the pipe cleaner together to complete triangle. Fit the pipe cleaner triangle to the edges of the felt "inside" ear piece, and glue together. Glue the "outside" ear piece to the felt within the triangle. Bend the base of the triangle into a small arc to create the shape of an ear.
Attach ears to the hoodie with fabric glue.
Assemble felt eyes and nose as shown in the template. Attach to hoodie with fabric glue.
Glue top teeth and gums to top inside of hood, arranged as shown in the template. Glue bottom teeth to bottom inside of hood, on either side of zipper.
To create nose wrinkles, draw diagonal lines of glue originating from the top center of the nose on the inside of the hood. Pinch and hold the outside of the hood over the glue lines to form the wrinkles.
