DIY Cartoon Character Sweatshirt Tutorial

I am always looking on Pinterest or Youtube for Great DIY and Crafting Projects to do with my kids.  Well I found a great one and now it’s time to share.

So the character for this tutorial is BADTZ-MARU (from Hello Kitty)


Here are the supplies


You can sew on the felt pieces or use glue.  We sewed the pieces onto the sweatshirt to ensure that the pieces will hold up well  after being washed.

A sweatshirt ( I purchased this item from Walmart for $6.00) If they don’t have the color or size you want in women’s or girl’s…….check the men’s & boy’s section.   My daughter wanted black but it was not available in her size… we headed to the men’s section and found just what she needed.

Felt in (white, black, yellow or orange) I purchased 5 pieces of felt for $1.00 @ Hancock Fabric’s.

Coordinating thread to match the color of the felt if sewing on.

Now for step by step directions check out this video below.

My kid’s really enjoyed this project and wore them the next day.  They already have the next shirt in mind.  So all in all this was a really fun and simple project.

Enjoy & Until Next Time,
