You can get your little rooster ready for his big day by following these simple instructions:
1. Begin by gathering supplies. You'll need quite a bit of yellow felt, along with red, orange, and just a bit of black and white. Look for specialty "stiff felt" in red and orange if you can find it. If not, two thin pieces of cardboard will do the trick. You will also need craft feathers in assorted colors, scissors, glue, and sewing supplies.
2. Lay the large piece yellow felt out on a table. Using the pattern displayed below, trim two of the hood shapes and the poncho from yellow.
3. Next, cut the comb from stiff red felt if you have it. If not, cut two comb shapes from red felt and one comb shape from the cardboard. Then glue the comb shape to either side of the cardboard to create a stiff, red comb. Allow it to dry completely before working with it again.
4. Cut three "wattle" shapes from regular red felt. Together, they will form the rooster's red bib.
5. Trim the visor shape out using stiff orange felt. If you don't have stiff orange, follow the same procedure that you used for the comb and cut two visors from regular orange felt and one from thin cardboard. Sandwich the cardboard between the two felt pieces and glue the three pieces together. Let dry.
6. Cut two 2" circles from white felt for the eyes. Add a 1" circle of black to the center of each white to create the pupil. Glue the two parts together, creating two separate eyes. Allow the pieces to dry completely.
7. Use standard orange felt to cut four of the bootie shapes out. You'll need two for each foot.
8. Once you have all of the pieces ready, it's time to begin the assembly. The starting point of this costume would ideally be a hooded yellow sweatshirt and orange pants. (Don't worry if those aren't available to you – these Halloween costume patterns for baby will look great over any outfit!)
9. Begin by sewing the hood pieces together along the rounded top edge. As you sew, stitch the comb into the center so that the seam will be on the outside with the excess fabric on the inside, neatly hidden from view. The comb should stick up from this "finished" side.
10. Attach the stiffened visor to the hood using glue where indicated in the pattern and reinforcing it with basting (or wide) stitches.
11. Add the eyes, gluing them down and allowing them to dry.
12. Place the headpiece on your child and mark the position where the chin straps should meet. Remove the hood.
13. Gather the three wattles and arrange them as demonstrated in the picture. Stitch them in place. The headpiece is finished!
14. Next, move on to the cape. Once you've cut the square shape and the rounded neck hole from the folded felt, all you have to do is glue the feathers around the outer perimeter of the felt. (Tip: If the poncho doesn't slide easily over your child's head, cut a small slit down the back )
15. The final step is the booties. Apply glue as shown in the pattern, then press the pieces together and reinforce them by stitching the seam. Flip the booties over so that the seam lies against the shoe. The booties should sit on top of the shoe, simply covering it without enclosing it completely. Add these to your baby's outfit, and the look is complete!
The costume below is what you'll get for your little one.
