Cut and Sew Playing Card Costumes!

Still looking for the perfect Halloween costume? Look no further! Print out these fun cut and sew card costumes. Play solo with the Queen of Hearts or take your crew and print out the full set. Follow along with the tutorial below or use the instructions printed on the pattern! ♣♦♥♠


You can find these fun costumes in our Cut and Sew category. We printed the entire card set designed by LaurenYoungDesigns and had them printed on our Silky Faille! These are a 2 yard design so be sure to select a quantity of 2 yards when ordering. We also chose a medium weight fusible interfacing to keep our cards nice and straight.

Supplies:

Printed Fabric
Scissors
Sewing Machine
Medium- Heavy Weight Interfacing
Thread
Pins

Step 1: Prep Fabric

Cut out pattern pieces along indicated cut lines. Add heavy to medium weight interfacing to body of costume by following instructions included with your interfacing.

We also decided to serge all the outside edges of the card for extra strength after fusing on the interfacing, this however is optional.

Step 2: Create Straps

Fold each strap in half long ways and sew long unfinished ends at 1/2″ seam allowances. Turn right side out. Fold in small ends 1/2″ and hem at 1/4″.

Step 3: Sewing Card

Fold bottom of cards 5/8″ press and pin. Then hem at 1/2″ seam allowance. Repeat for sides.

Step 4: Neckline

Clip curves base stitch 1/8” around hole. Fold neck hole inwards 1/4″ and edge stitch.

Step 6: Sewing on Straps

Pin straps on each notch on front and back. Stitch down at ½” seam allowance.

Done! Now you have the perfect playing card costume. Want to make these smaller for your kids? Simply use our DPI adjustments to shrink down the design to any size you want!
