Last Halloween, my little boy was all about Thomas the Tank Engine (age 2.5). I didn't really care for the commercial Thomas costumes you can buy in the store, so I set out to make one. It was so simple and cheap to make. Here's what you need: -blue sweatsuit -gray material (I chose a soft jersey material) -black felt -iron-on transfer paper -needle & thread Here's what I did: -found a photo of Thomas' face and enlarged it to 8.5x11 size. I printed it onto an iron-on transfer. -cut out the face closely to the edge -ironed on Thomas' face onto gray material (cut out in a large circle) -cut out two small circles from the black felt -attached Thomas' face (gray circle with face) onto the sweatshirt by hand stitching all around the circle -attached the felt circles (buffers) to the knees of the sweatpants by hand stitching I added a train conductor hat and voila...I was done & he looked adorable on Halloween!
