Materials

  • Green hooded sweatshirt
  • Green fleece pajama bottoms
  • Turtle Tuck Costume Templates
  • 3 jumbo pieces dark green stiff felt
  • Scissors
  • Bright green slick paint
  • Needle and thread
  • Fabric glue
  • 27- by 54-in. blue fleece, cotton, or bed sheet
  • 8 1/2- by 11-in. swatches of yellow, blue, and red felt
  • White knit cap
  • Red pom-pom
  • Light blue fabric marker
  • Blue water shoes
  • Green face paint (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cut the sleeves off the hooded sweatshirt and set aside with the pajama bottoms. Print the Tuck Costume Templates and enlarge the templates on a copier by 200 percent. Cut out the templates and use them as a guide to cut out the dark green felt for Tuck's shell. Use slick paint to make outlines on the shell, and allow the paint to dry overnight. Sew or use fabric glue to attach the green felt to the hooded sweatshirt.

  2. Step 2

    Use the blue fabric and yellow, blue, and red felt to make a <u><a href="wonder-pets-save-the-day-cape.jhtml">Wonder Pets Cape</a></u> for Tuck.

  3. Step 3

    Tack the cap with a few stitches here and there to hold it into the shape of a flat sailor's hat. Sew the red pom-pom on top. Paint a blue stripe around the bottom of the cap with the fabric marker.

  4. Step 4

    Dress your child in the green pajama bottoms, add water shoes, the cape, and the hat, and apply some green face paint. Now your child is ready to "save the day" and have a happy Halloween.
