  • Step 1

    First choose a sweatshirt pattern. Any hooded sweatshirt pattern should work as long as it has a two piece hood (so the spikes will go down the center of the hood).

    Once you have your pattern, you'll need to download and print the spike pattern. I've included four different sizes of spikes you can use and labeled the number of each I used for a size 3T hoodie. You can use more or fewer spikes and if you are making a bigger sized hoodie, just cut out a few more spikes.

    The steps to sew on the spikes are simple:

    Step 1: Place your two felt spike pieces wrong sides together and sew around two of the sides with a narrow seam allowance.

    Step 2: Turn the spikes right side out and press them. Then place the spikes along one of your hood fabric pieces to get the spacing of the spikes the way you want.

    Step 3: When you're happy with your spike placement, line up the raw edges of your spikes with the raw edge of the right side of a hood piece. Then you'll simply place the other hood piece right side down, sandwiching the spikes inside the hood. Sew along the hood pieces using the seam allowance noted in your pattern.

    Then continue sewing the hoodie according to the pattern instructions. That's it!

    And if your little one is anything like mine, you'll get a few big roars when they get to test out their new dinosaur hoodie.
