Spiderman (Miles Morales)
For the mask:
Cut an oval from black felt that fits over the face.
Cut two teardrop eye pieces from red felt and cut two smaller teardrops from white felt.
Hot glue together onto the mask.
Cut out eye openings and use silver fabric paint to make the spiderweb lines onto the mask.
Cut and glue an elastic band to the sides of the mask.
For the top:
Cut a sheet of black felt to fit onto the top and cut and glue a pointed panel for the bottom edge.
Draw the spider logo onto red felt and cut out.
Hot glue it to the black felt base and use silver fabric paint to make the spiderweb lines onto the black felt.
Attach this piece to the top with fabric tape.
For the upper arm panels:
Cut two matching panels for the upper arms.
Attach to the upper sleeves and top with fabric tape.
For the wrist and leg panels:
Cut rectangles of black felt to fit over the wrists and legs.
Use silver fabric paint to make the spiderweb lines onto the panels.
Once dry, wrap around the wrists and legs and attach with fabric tape.
For the vest:
Cut two long skinny strips of red felt and hot glue the ends together into a “V” shape.
Attach to the top with double sided fabric tape.
For the knee high stripes:
Cut two long and wide strips of black felt that fits around the calf.
Cut and hot glue two stripes of red felt along the top and bottom edge of the black strip.
Attach these stripes around the calf near the top of the socks with double sided fabric tape.
For the backpack:
Cut the top two corners of 2 sheets of green felt to be rounded.
Cut wide strips of felt for the sides and bottom of the backpack and hot glue to the 2 larger panels.
Cut green felt straps for the backpack and hot glue to the top and bottom edges of the back of the backpack.
Make the cat face backpack details from yellow, black, and red felt and hot glue onto the front of the pack.
Cut a white rectangle for the front pocket and hot glue on.
For the hood:
Trace an existing hood onto white felt and cut out 2 matching panels. If you don’t have a hood to trace, cut two rectangles of white felt that’s several inches taller and wider than the wearer’s head. Spider-Gwen’s hood is loose, so feel free to make it a larger hood.
Cut the top right corner to be curved - this will be the back of the hood.
Hot glue the panels together along the top, the curve, and right side back edge.
Turn the hood inside out so that the seam is on the inside. Repeat these steps to make the pink inner lining of the hood and hot glue together.
Use silver fabric paint to make the spiderweb lines onto the pink inner lining.
Once dry, attach the base of the hood to the top with safety pins or fabric tape.
For the mask:
Cut out an oval from white craft foam that fits over the wearer’s face.
Use black and pink markers to draw the eyes onto the mask.
Mark and cut out eye openings.
Hot glue an elastic band to the mask to wear around the head.
For the arms:
Cut two long skinny diamonds from pink felt and make the spiderweb design onto it with silver paint.
Attach to the inner arms of the top with fabric tape.
For the torso:
Cut a panel of black felt with points like Spider-Gwen’s costume and attach to the top with fabric tape.
For a red felt covering for the hood:
Flatten out the hood of the hoodie and trace the hood shape onto a sheet of red felt and cut out, leaving an extra ½” along the top and back edge of the hood for the seam allowance.
Trace and cut out another matching hood panel from red felt.
Hot glue the top and back edges together and turn inside out.
You now have a cover for the hood.
For the head eyes:
Cut two ovals from black felt and two smaller felt ovals that fit on top for the eyes and glue together.
Use a fine tipped black fabric squeeze paint to make the spiderweb design onto the red felt hood.
Once dry, glue the eyes onto the hood.
For the snout:
Cut an oval from red felt and use a fine tipped black fabric squeeze paint to make the spiderweb design onto the snout.
Cut two small black ovals and two smaller white ovals for the nostrils and glue together.
Glue the nostrils onto the snout once the paint is dry and glue onto the front edge of the red hood.
For the ears:
Cut two sets of pointy ears from red felt and sandwich a pipe cleaner between each and glue together.
Bend the ears to flop like Spider-Ham’s and glue to the top of the red hood.
Attach the red hood over the blue hoodie hood with double sided fabric tape.
For the chest, sleeves, and legs:
Cut red felt strips for the sleeves, a rectangle with wings on the bottom edge for the chest, and two rectangles for the legs.
Use a fine tipped black fabric squeeze paint to make the spiderweb design and spider onto felt.
Once dry, attach to the hoodie and bottoms with double sided fabric tape.
