I am a crocheter not a sewer. I wish I knew how to sew and was even given a sewing machine for a wedding gift but was too afraid to try it out. It sits in my craft room, untouched until I am brave enough to learn. I am determined to make Judah's costume each year and this year I wanted to have him dressed up like an Ewok from Starwars. I didn't want to hand sew the custom so I used my hot glue gun!
All you need is a hoodie, sweatpants, fur fabric, fabric that looks like pleather, cardboard and a hot glue gun.
I placed the sweatpants and hoodie on top of the fur fabric and cut it up in sections. I just eyed it. For the front part of the hoodie I made sure I hot glued the fabric along the zipper so I am able to zip Judah in and out of his costume.
Once the fur was hot glued on I put some hot glue along the edge of the hoodie and attached the pleather fabric. I cut the back up a little to make it look like a real Ewoks hoodie. Then I cut two bear ears out of cardboard and hot glued fur on the ears. You will want to put a generous amount of hot glue on the bottom of the ears and hold it onto the hoodie for a few seconds to get them to stand up straight.
All you need is a large stick from your backyard and you have a no sew Ewok costume. I was able to make this entire costume in two hours max.
Its really easy, affordable and super cute! Judah runs around giggling hysterically because he looks like a "Wok". The two hours and the hot glue burns are totally worth hearing my sons laughter.
I actually bought the boots off of an Etsy store last year when Judah dressed up as Chewbacca. He will probably be able to wear them for another year.
