Halloween can be a tricky thing to plan for here in the Midwest. Some years we are blessed with AMAZING weather and we don’t have to fret with lots of layers. I have to say that is not what is typical here, although that would be pretty great! Most years we are bundled up with boots, wool socks, and coats. That’s why these DIY DINOSAUR GLOVES were the perfect addition to daughter #4’s handmade costume.

1. CUT OUT CLAWS

First, cut out one tear drop shape from your felt.

Then use that claw as your template to cut out 9 more felt dinosaur claws

2. SEW THEM ON

After you have all 10 dinosaur claws {or monster claws they can be for LOTS of different costumes} you are ready to start sewing them on. Thread your needle using your coordinating thread. Instead of placing the knot inside the glove I suggest hiding it under the dino nail.

This way the knot won’t irritate your kiddo. I know lots of kids have sensory issues, while my daughters don’t have this too bad I was one of those kids. I HATED jeans because the inseam “hurt” and I HAD to wear my socks inside out because I couldn’t handle the way that seam felt on my toes. Back then they didn’t call it sensory issues they called it being picky. So If your kiddo has any kind of sensory issue be sure to place the know on the outside, not the inside of the glove.

Now place one felt dinosaur nail on the glove so that half of it is on the glove and half is hanging off. Then stitch it on using a simple stitch. You don’t have to get fancy with the stitch, just a simple straight will be perfect for this. BE SURE YOU ARE NOT STITCHING THROUGH BOTH SIDES OF THE GLOVE. You just want to go thru the very first layer of the glove. Repeat this for all 5 dinosaur nails on the first glove.

 

When you get to the second glove don’t just start sewing dino claws on it. Trust me I totally made the mistake of starting on the second glove and I didn’t realize till my daughter tried them on that I had sewn claws on them and made 2 RIGHT HANDED GLOVES. So before you start the second glove lay them both out in front of you so that you have one right glove and one left glove. It totally sucked to take the claws off of the second glove right after I just thought I had finished lol!

When you have the second glove facing the correct way you can start sewing the dinosaur claws onto that glove the same way you sewed them onto the first glove.
