I started with a simple pattern that I altered by putting in a collar.
cut the pattern
I cut out the various colors of fabric to add the stripes.
|Using Iron on paper, I printed out various logos I had gathered from around the net, trying to match the type and size on the origional suit and ironed them on to the costume.||A few I saved until after the costume was made so that I could make sure to center it propery.|
|The first car I made was paper mache.||Which my son and I painted together||We installed mini flashlights for the headlights. (even though Nascars do not need lights because they don't drive at night!)|
|We installed break lights too.||Here is a night vision of the headlights||We printed the decals and glued them on and I used fabric straps as a harness.|
The next year he
wanted the same costume, but the car didn't survive.
So I made him one out of fabric that he still has 6 years later! (and counting)
