MAKE | Dino Hoodies

DIY hoodies

As soon as the sun shines here in the Land of Nord we head to the beach. There is quite literally nowhere else our little pack of wild things would rather be.

The kids love to dress up when we go on adventures but often store bought costumes aren’t suitable for outdoor use. I love these DIY dinosaur style hoodies as they can be worn everyday and are a great extra layer for outings.

As always the kids had quite specific instructions in mind. They wanted the spines to be different sizes because that’s what real dinosaurs are like. My little boy asked if his could be a superhero dinosaur and we settled on a lightning bolt on the back.

I pretty much followed this excellent DIY Hoodie Tutorial. I found a couple of grey hoodies at H&M and bought some black felt from the craft store. In order to make the spines stick up I put a little polyester wadding between the sections. The wadding is soft so the spines are comfortable to lean on but instantly pop back in to shape.
