For Halloween this year our family decided on SpongeBob as our theme. I was elected to be Patrick. It was a bit of challenge, since we didn’t have a pattern to base the homemade Patrick Star Halloween costume on, so I had to come up with a lot of paper patterns for the costume first.
The main body, hood and lower feet (knee to ankle) were basically cone shape pieces. The arms were long triangular shapes with rounded ends. For the shorts you just have to do a lot of trial-n-error, until the pattern works out. The feet were just a typical spat design. The main body also had a hula hoop (shortened to 14” Dia.) at shoulder height and a hula hoop (shortened to 26” Dia.) at waist height. The hoops were inserted into a casing seam after all sewing was finished. The top hoop also had eight holes drilled in it, so that four pieces of elastic string could be inserted thru the holes, then knotted at the end of each string (see picture). This kept the top hoop at shoulder height.
The eye and mouth openings in the hood were covered with a piece of needle point plastic sheet, with black felt cut & glued for the eye pupil. The hood also had pieces of interfacing added to the inside (for body). I also included photos of our Krusty Krab float (which was covering a S-10 truck).
For this Patrick Star homemade Halloween costume I purchased a very large piece of pink felt, laid it out and cut out the shape of a star. I sewed the two pieces together. Putting velcro in the leg openings so we could get it on and off by slipping it over his head and then closing the openings. I cut out the pattern of his shorts and glued them on.
I used some sturdy foam to create the shape of the cone for his head and stuffed it in the top of the point on his head. I applied some pink paint to his face.
He won at the school costume contest!

My kids wanted to be SpongeBob & Patrick for Halloween, but it seemed impossible to find a Patrick Star costume to fit a 3 yr. old. People on E-bay were selling them too expensive or infant size Patrick costumes. So I decided to make a Patrick Star Kids Costume from scratch.
The whole costume was sewed by hand, with no experience!! I doubted myself but I continued. I wanted to make it unique.
So far it came out OK! My daughter loves it. I spent less then 20 hrs. making it. Material in total cost $25.00
