This is how Maddie’s where the wild things are costume turned out. It was really super easy to make. You can complete this project in about an hour’s time. Here’s how. Step 1: Get hand measurements. I did this by tracing Madeline’s hand on a piece of paper. Step 2: Trace the claw on to your white felt. I used a fabric pen. You can just freehand draw the claws right onto the felt. I’m no good at freehand drawing and I’m the type of person that needs things to be exact, so I made a claw pattern in illustrator, printed and cut it out and used that as my tracing pattern. You can download the claw template at the end of this post. I ended up cutting the claws to the entire length of the felt because I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to secure the claws to her hands. It ended up being way too long – covering her entire forearm – so I shortened it (a lot) later. Step 3: Make the claw fastenable. I cuffed them up and sewed along the top to create an opening that I could loop a ribbon/string through to tie the claws the her hands. Here’s a no sew alternative. Just make two length-wise slits and loop your string/ribbon through. Hand claws done! Next up: the claw feet. Here’s how to make a set of claw shaped shoe covers (for babies). Step 4: Trace the claw on to your white felt. I used the same claw pattern that I used for the claw hands. Position the claw pattern to the center of the felt. Just trace the 4 claws along the top and cut those out. Place the felt over the shoe, with the claws sticking out slightly, and wrap the felt around the shoe until it is covered all the way around. Cut away the excess felt. This is what my cutout ended up looking like. Step 5: Secure the feet claws. I used velcro, a set in the back and one at the front of the shoe. Feet claws done! Next up: The Crown. Step 6: Trace and cut the crown. Again, I made crown template in illustrator and traced the pattern onto 2 sheets of grey felt. You can download the crown template at the end of this post. Step 7: Adhere felt crown to hat. I stitched them on. Velcro works too. What the hat looked like on Maddie. I used the triangle scraps from the crown cutouts to make this bunting. Just because. I like bunting. The crown is done! Last step: tail. Step 8: Adhere the tail to the pants. I used velcro. Project Supply List: – crown and claw clip art (download here) – 4 sheets of white felt for the claws – 2 sheets of grey felt for the crown – velcro – fabric pen for tracing (optional) – needle and thread (optional) Details on putting together the foundation for this costume can be found in this post. I hope you enjoy the download and happy crafting!
