V has been obsessed with the PJ Masks ever since it first aired. For her 3rd birthday, this was the theme and we really wanted to let the kiddos dress up. With help from Mama K we came up with these fun No Sew PJ Masks Costumes for her party.
Now V is constantly switching her favorite character and the quote “use your super cat speed” comes out all of the time to get her to hustle up. Somewhere I missed the sewing gene in our family. To me sewing equals time. Time isn’t something I always have loads of so I wanted to come up with something anyone could create.
What you need for your no-sew PJ Masks Costumes:
- Red Fabric. Something will a little give to it.
- Heat bonding hem tape.
- Blue Fabric. Again something with a little give.
- Blue Felt.
- No-sew glue
- Rubber bands.
- Pipe cleaners. (Green)
- Hot glue.
- Green Felt.
- Clothes Pins
- Fiber filler.
- Scissors or Exacto knife.
- Headbands (Blue and Green)
- Clothes pins.
How to make your no-sew PJ Masks Costumes:
Using a standard piece of green felt create a cone-like shape. Secure edges with no sew glue. Set to the side to dry. Cut a couple of slits in the top point and thread through some elastic. Once dry stuff the tail with fiber filling. Then, using green pipe cleaners bend and twist them to create a green Gekko mohawk.
Create some simple cat ears by cutting out 2 diamonds and them folding them over a headband. Use your no-sew glue and clip with clothespins until dry. For the tail take a long piece of cardboard and form a skinny tube. Hot glue and hold with rubber bands until dry. Add in a pipe cleaner out one end to allow you to create a bend.
Thread some elastic out the opposite end long enough to tie around a little one’s waste. Cover the whole tail in blue fabric and glue with your no-sew glue.
These no-sew wings for Owlette were by far V’s favorite! Start by measuring the span of your little one. For our kiddos the width of the material was perfect. So I simply folded it in half and cut out a simple wing design.
Using your Exacto knife create a couple of slits about 6″ apart in the center along the top of your wings to thread your red ribbon through.
Using your heat bond hem tape, fold over the top and create a hem the whole length of the wings. The ribbon behind the neck should be inside the hem with the ends coming out through the 2 slits you cut. Secure the hem by ironing it down. Cut two small slits in the tips of the wings. Through the heat bond. Just big enough to get their little thumbs through. If you are making wings for a larger kid you can reinforce the area with more heat bond tape.
