DIY No Sew Superhero Costumes

These no sew DIY Superhero costumes are quick and easy to make!

It seems like just yesterday that I was bringing my twin boys home on Halloween, fast forward a few years and they are turning five and growing into the most wonderful little individuals who clearly need superhero costumes!
They both chose to have a Superhero Birthday Party this year (after looking at the other Pirate / Angry Birds options on Pinterest). 
 
So rather than the traditional goodie bag party favors, I decided to make an individual no sew super hero costume for each party guest.  They also make the perfect DIY Halloween Costume for young children!
I have created a no sew super hero costumes tutorial for you so that perhaps your little one can become a superhero too!  This is one of the most easy ways to make a homemade superhero costume.
 

The costume details:

  • Each costume includes a mask, body suit and gauntlets.
  • Using the following measurements they should fit children sizes 4 – 8.
  • I used this free template for the masks from Jessica at Cutesy Crafts.
  • I used this free pattern for the gauntlets from Cheryl at Sew Can Do.
  • Patterns for each body suit can be found below.

What do you mean no sew?

You can put these costumes together using a hot glue gun rather than sewing machine.  Simply glue where patterns say to stitch. 
 
If you chose to use felt and glue then you cannot machine wash the costume – they become hand wash only.  If you use cotton and thread then the costumes may be thrown in the washing machine.

Materials needed for each costume:

Use these simple steps for each superhero costume:

1. Cut a piece of felt 14″ x 36″.  Next cut an oval in the centre 6″ x 4″.  Now cut a slit from the centre of the oval, 4″ down the back of the costume.  Be sure to try it on and make sure that it fits over the head of the child.

 2.  Cut out the super hero logo and/or bodysuit pattern.  Glue to the front of the costume. 
 
Attach the pieces of ribbon to the sides of the costume, one ribbon on each side of the front and back, 8″ from the top shoulder of the costume.  I sewed the ribbon on for extra support. 
 
For a no sew option simply cut a small hole in the felt and tie the ribbon through it.
