Today I wanted to share how I made a Dr. Seuss-inspired Star-Bellied Sneetch Costume for Elias. You remember The Sneetches and Other Stories, right? Such a classic!
This costume is super easy to make and requires no sewing.
I didn’t think about a tutorial as I was putting the Star-Bellied Sneetch Costume together, but I made a video afterward talking about how to do it step-by-step.
Supplies that you will need
- White t-shirt
- Yellow Rit Dye
- White baseball hat
- Black and white craft paint (for eyes)
- White felt (3-4 sheets)
- Green felt (one sheet)
- Black feathers
- Stitch Witchery
- Dye t-shirt and white hat with yellow Rit dye, following instructions in dye. This will ensure that the costume pieces match (vs. if you were to find a yellow t-shirt or yellow hat)
- Cut white long triangles for the shirt
- Cut a green star for the belly
- Iron on all felt pieces using Stitch Witchery
- Paint eyes on hat using craft paint
- Adhere black feathers to top of hat
