Dragon Hoodies

Pin It

Perfect for cooler fall weather, and the Halloween spirit, this weekend I made my girls these fabulous Dragon Hoodies!  (Or dinosaur - whatever floats your boat)

I was a dinosaur (or dragon) for Halloween last year, and made these dragon tails which now go with these hoodies perfectly.  When I saw these hoodies with a tutorial here at Just Sew Sassy - I knew I wanted to make some for my kids. 

I found inexpensive hoodies at Target, and used scraps I had around the house for the rest.

For my younger daughter, I used the purple fleece, and for my older daughter I used the pink flannel (I even sewed ricrac on those pink scales!)  I would say though, that the fleece looks better when all is said and done.  It is thicker and stiffer - and stands up better.  I had the flannel on hand though - so I used it, and it is still cute :)

This project took me seriously - 20 or 30 minutes.  That's it!!   So, if you are in one of those moods  (like me) where you want to complete a quick and satisfying project - try this one!   
The kids won't take them off :)

    While you're there, grab a featured button and feel free to link up any other holiday craftiness!

  8. I am in the process of making one of these for my niece and I was wondering if I stuffed the spikes with batting would there be any problems. Like getting lumpy after washing causing the batting to move around. Do you have any suggestions for making the batting stay in place?

    Thank you,
