DIY Dino Hoodie


I came across this idea on Pinterest and LOVED it! Here's a little tutorial on how I made it.  It's really simple.
Supplies:
Sewing machine
Scissors
Hoodie
Felt

Step 1: Fold felt in half and cut triangles.

Step 2: Unfold the felt and line it up with the seam on the hoodie. 

Step 3: Sew the felt to the hoodie.

Step 4: Sew the triangle flaps together so they become one.  I used a zigzag stitch for texture.

Step 5: Wear and become a dinosaur.  Don't worry, Aiden and Cooper will show you how.
