Easy DIY Dinosaur Hoodies
Dinosaur hoodies are an easy DIY project that is perfect for any beginning sewer. Homemade dinosaur hoodies are fun for kids of all ages.
I saw a kid wearing a dinosaur hoodie and thought it couldn’t be too hard to make myself. I found an end of season clearance sale, and the toddler hoodies were only $4 each. Once I figured out how to make it, this was a project that came together in a snap. These are perfect and inexpensive gifts to give. They’re inexpensive, super speedy, and kids love them. They may not be expertly-made, but they’re definitely made with love.
Dinosaur Hoodie Supply List
-thread corresponding to the color of the felt
1) Start by tracing and cutting a diamond in the felt. Then use that as a guide to cut out the other diamonds.
3) Sew a standard stitch down the middle of the diamond and do your best to keep the seam on the seam of the hoodie.
4) Bring the diamond together and stitch along each side of the triangle. Repeat for all the other diamonds.
Yep, it is really that simple.
Wow! Such a great idea, your hoodie is so cute darling xx, Thanks a lot for sharing this amazing tips Sarah
Glad you liked it Lane. I’m thinking of trying out a shark at some point!
Oh my goodness!! I didn’t realize how much B looks like Jack AND how much MORE sunscreen you will need now, lol.
Very clever idea on the hoodies.
How is your dad making out on his RV journey? Was hoping on your Sunday chatting you would give us an update. I try to remember to say a prayer for him.

Those are pictures of Jack. 🙂 It is an old post I updated (instructions were confusing and the photos were tiny before). He was probably three there.
But yes, oh my yes on the sunscreen. They’re both so very pale. Not that I can talk.
He took a nine-day trip to the ocean as a trial. He heads out again for a month or so this weekend. He likes it a lot, but I know he misses the boys when he is away.
So cute, you could totally continue down the back as well!!
So cute! Does the felt stand up to standard laundering? Or does it tend to fray?
The felt is quite firm, and as far as I know, it’s held up well to laundering.
This is AWESOME. I have a daughter currently obsessed with dinos. I have a sewing machine collecting dust. This seems simple enough for me to do!
Adorable! Love the colors! Good job, Sarah!
