Homemade Patrick Star from Spongebob Costume

For this Homemade Patrick Star from Spongebob Costume I started with McCall’s 8938 and skip any animal parts, just need the basic jumper and hood pieces. Jumper just needs to be sized to fit your child, I used a size 2 and downscaled to fit my 5 month old son. It’s made from fleece with elastic around the ankles, zipper in the back, and double fold 1/2” bias tape around the neckline.

The shorts I used the jumper pattern then folded along the waistline adding a few inches for folding down the waistband, and shortened the legs to the knees adding a couple inches for hemming up. Once sewn I seam ripped the front hem and threaded some ¼” cord through to make them drawstring.

The hood I kept the original pattern shape for the liner then for the outer layer I elongated it by drawing a line up from the ear line and used a cup to round the top. Then I took the middle pattern piece and elongated it to match the new length keeping the front and back the same shape just added a few more inches in the middle. I skipped the elastic in the hood so it would drape his shoulders.

I stuffed the top of the hood with fiber fill then hand sewed it closed. I cut the eyes and eyebrows out of felt and used a sharpie marker to outline the eyes giving them depth. I attached them using hot glue. It took about 6 hours to make spread out over a week since I can only work when they are asleep.

Pink ribbed knit (6”)
12” zipper
