Sonic the Hedgehog has been around since the early 90s as one of Sega’s best known video game characters. He’s also been a movie star and can be a hoodie in your home! If your little racer is digging this blue spiny mammal, then break out your sewing needle and give a quick makeover to a blue hoodie to become Sonic the Hedgehog.

Fun fact: I didn’t have a Sega system but loved to play it when I babysit the little girls next door! Now I have girls of my own and I made my oldest a Sonic the Hedgehog hoodie. The world is full circle!
DIY Sonic the Hedgehog Hoodie Supplies:
- Blue hoodie
- Felt – blue, tan
- Heat n Bond Iron On adhesive Roll
- Large Scrap paper
- Air erase pen or chalk
- Needle and blue thread
- Safety Pins
- Sonic the Hedgehog Template
First, lay the hoodie down and place a piece of the tan fabric over the stomach area. Draw a circle using the air erase pen. (tip: fold in half and draw half a circle!)
Cut out this shape.
Lay the hood part of the hoodie down on a large piece of scrap paper. Draw (5) spikes as Sonic’s head with chalk.
Cut out this template, cutting a smaller curved shape at the bottom, as shown.
Print out the ear shapes from the printable template. Cut out the tan and blue shapes.
Use Heat n Bond to apply the tan circle on the front stomach area of the hoodie with an iron.
Adhere the ran ear pieces onto the blue ear pieces, as shown.
Have the child put the hoodie on and use chalk to draw lines where the ears and spikes will go.
Place the blue spikes along the chalk line and secure with safety pins. Use a needle and blue thread to secure in place while sewing.
Use fabric scissors to cut a hole along the lines for the ears. Insert the blue ears in the hole and attach with needle and thread.
Lay the spikes on the hoodie top and sew on the underneath side to hide the stitches.
When you flip them back over to wear them, the spikes stick up a bit, which is good!
Remember to remove any safety pins before wearing but your little speed racer will be ready to rock this DIY hoodie!
Lace up your red running shoes and get ready to collect power up rings with this Sonic the Hedgehog hoodie handmade by you!
