Frozen Olaf Halloween Costume


One of my friends messaged me a few weeks ago asking if I could make an Olaf costume for her 1 year old, since her 3 year old already had an Elsa dress from an earlier trip to Disney World. To be honest I had no idea how I was going to pull it off, but I couldn't resist the challenge since 1) I love Frozen, and 2) the results had the potential to be adorable. Who wouldn't love seeing a baby plodding around as Olaf with that cute, awkward little walk they have?

Naturally, I turned to Google since it holds the power to answer any and all questions (unless it's medical - then you should stay away at all costs because it will convince you you're as good as dead). After staring at about 50 million different pictures of Olaf, I decided the best way to go was a hat with a chin strap. I found a free tutorial (including printable templates - SCORE!) here, and the rest is history!



The exterior is white minky, and the interior is plain white Kona cotton. I made the appliqués from Kona solids as well (except for the "hair" sprouts, which is felt), and freehanded all of them except for the eyes. Those were traced from various round objects I scrounged up in my sewing room, which may or may not have included the end of a spool of thread, a bobbin, and an empty tube of washi tape. I kind of felt like MacGyver (although, I have to say I prefer Stargate SG-1 Richard Dean Anderson to the be-mulleted MacGyver version)


Originally I was going to finish off the chin straps with some velcro like the pattern suggests, but after my friend told me her daughter's head measures pretty big for her age, I sewed a little piece of elastic between the two straps to allow for more give.


And here's the onesie - pretty simple. Just three "coal" appliqués with some fusible knit interfacing on the back. If you're ever doing appliqué on knit, I highly recommend using some because it keeps the fabric from stretching out and getting all wonky (I used Pellon EK130 White Easy Knit).


Tomorrow I'll be posting pics of the Plaid Baby's Halloween costume / 1st Birthday outfit (which is coming up in November - eek! I'm in total denial!!!) Oh...and just for good measure, here's a pic of the Plaid Baby wearing the Olaf hat - couldn't resist a trial run before turning it over to the new owner ;)
