Jessie Toy Story DIY No Sew Halloween Costume Tutorial

Jessie Toy Story DIY No Sew Halloween Costume Tutorial

Grace finally decided what she wants to be for Halloween this year and so I'm trying to start figuring out their costumes. Last year was the last time I got to decide what they wore without input and I think they were adorable as Jessie and Woody from Toy Story.

I have a very hard time spending much money on costumes they're going to wear for a couple of hours. Plus, Disney character costumes can easily run you $30 each for the basic version. So I decided to make Grace's costume myself. I thought I'd share how I did it. The best part? There's absolutely no sewing involved!

Shirt: I found a plain white long sleeved polo shirt at Walmart. I cut the yellow cuff and shirt shapes out of a thick yellow felt I found at Hobby Lobby and used a red glitter pen to add the details to the cuff and shirt. I tried to use stick on velcro to attach the shirt pieces, but found that they didn't stick to the shirt fabric very well. I ended up using glue dots and they held perfectly. I added a few white ribbon loops to the cuffs and used glue dots again to add them to her shirt.

Pants: I found a cow print fabric at Hobby Lobby cheap and cut out two long panels to attach to the front of a pair of her regular jeans. I used safety pins to attach them so that I wouldn't ruin the jeans.

Hat: I was hoping to find a red foam hat but after several shopping trips, all I could find was brown. So I bought a brown foam hat from Dollar Tree and decided to paint it red. I used a foam brush and painted several coats of bright red acrylic paint to match the color of Jessie's hat. To create the lacing effect, I used a hole punch to create holes about an inch apart all the way around the brim. I laced thin white ribbon through each hole and tied it off in the back. I used glue dots to attach a thick white ribbon around the base (it's hard to get it even but keep trying!)


Add a pair of cowboy boots (or brown shoes in our case) and your little Jessie is ready for Trick-or-Treat! I spent a grand total of $10 on the entire costume!

What will your kids be for Halloween this year?
