No-Sew Elsa Hoodie

About: Freelance social media manager and content creator who loves all things nerdy!

It's hard to image that we ever lived in a world without Frozen. But now that it's here, we'll never let it go, despite what the catchy song might say. With Frozen 2's premiere coming soon and Halloween right around the corner, we thought it was the perfect time to get crafting a hoodie inspired by the ice queen herself.

Elsa was on quite the journey of self-discovery during the first movie, so we're excited to see how she embraces her powers in the sequel. Let your little one become this frosty queen with the help of this adorable DIY hoodie project.

Step 1: Apply White Pane

Cut your white felt fabric to fit the chest of the hoodie. Mark off areas to cut. Adhere with heat n' bond.

Step 2: Add the Blue Felt

Create the double-curved design of Elsa's signature dress and adhere blue felt fabric to the front of the hoodie.

This will cover the pocket so make sure to cut slits in the blue felt if you want access to it.

Step 3: Create the Hair

Use the template to cut out the yellow felt pieces for her braid. Adhere the pieces together.

Add yellow felt fabric to the hood of the sweatshirt.

Adhere the braid to the shoulder of the hoodie.

Step 4: Add the Vinyl Details

Cut the snowflake, star and crown designs from the iron-on vinyl.

Adhere the snowflakes and stars to the blue felt fabric of her dress.

Apply the crown to the hood.
