Baby Wolf Hoodie Costume

I got my instructions here but I did a couple of things different. First, I noticed since it was a bigger kid wearing the costume I shrunk the printable pattern to 75% of the original size so it would fit better on a infant size hoodie. Then, I added claws to the bottom of the pants like the ones that you add to the arms of the hoodie. I just made the claws for the sweatpants bigger since it is a bigger opening. Its pretty easy though because you don't have to sew anything. You attach everything with fabric glue!

  1. Hi! Such a cute kid! And a cool wolf hoodie! I want to do something similar for my 2-year-old and I'm wondering how well these hoodie costumes hold up. Are they washable? Does the fabric glue keep everything attached through the washing machine? Any tips you can give me would be much appreciated! :)

    1. Thanks I think he is pretty cute too :) They are washable and the fabric glue holds up pretty good but I don't know how well they would hold up through multiple washings. You could always try sewing the pieces down by hand if you are worried about it! You might need to do a little bit of reshaping of the ears but since they are made with pipe cleaners they are pretty moldable. He just wore it once for Halloween so I only washed it once. Hope that helps!

    2. Thanks so much for your reply! I think I probably will need to sew down some edges, just to be sure. Pipe cleaners is a good idea...that's great to be able to mold them to just the right shape. Thanks again! :)
