This Homemade Baby Popeye Costume was such an easy and cute costume to put together for my little Popeye.

The pants were made with some blue fabric I had on hand….initially cost 1.99/yard. I added a yellow belt using yellow binding that I had. The shirt was a black t-shirt that my son already had and just turned it inside out. I used some of the same blue fabric and sewed fabric for the cuffs on the sleeves. I used red felt for the collar…(got this at Joanns for .25 a square. Used 2 squares. I used another shirt collar as a pattern and just made it bigger. For the buttons I used yellow felt cut into circles and made 2 black dots on them. Then hot glued them on the black shirt.

The muscles. I found a pair of my old women’s light tan socks. I cut the toe part off them and just used the longer part. I also had to make them tighter so they would stay on my babies arms so I cute them lengths wise… cut out about an inch of the sock and sewed them back together. I then just put them on his arm and stuffed some stuffing in it. I then drew anchors with marker on the socks.

The hat was the hardest part. I couldn’t find a sailors hat online small enough to fit the head of my baby, so I found a white bonnet looking hat at Good will for 1.25 and transformed it into this hat also using a collar off a men’s white shirt that I also got at Goodwill. I just cut off the collar and sewed it onto the hat to create the look off a sailor hat.

The spinach can was an old baby formula can. I printed out the words 'popeyes spinach.' Covered the can with green paper and then the popeyes spinach label. Used green tissue paper to represent the spinach.

Super cheap costume.
Total cost- $4.75
Pants: 1.00 for blue fabric
Shirt: 0.50 cents for red felt and already had shirt.
Hat: 1.25 for hat and 2.00 for mens white shirt = total 3.25
Muscles: Free- already had old socks and stuffing.

I have also made an Olive Oyl for myself... and my husband will go as Brutus. Pictures to come!
