I’m sharing a super easy costume today, perfect for any Peanuts gang fan. A Charlie Brown costume made from a sweatshirt would make an easy Halloween costume or fun hoodie to wear when the new Peanuts Movie opens in theaters next month!
All you need is a yellow hoodie and black felt. I printed out a Charlie Brown shirt pattern I found online. There are tons available and you could even draw your own template fairly easily.
I used stich witch and ironed the black felt on to the front of the sweatshirt. You could also hot glue or stich it on.
In fact I did sew “hair” to the top of the hood. The stitch witch material was wider than the hair so stitching just made sense. Hot glue would also work here. I didn’t use a template for Charlie Brown’s “hair,” I just freehanded the design following a picture of Charlie Brown I found online. I’m pretty happy with the result and given my lack of scissor skills, I am pretty sure anyone can duplicate this design.
Hmm now do I have time to make Elliot a Snoopy one too?? 😉
