I can’t believe that Halloween is right around the corner! And if your kids are like my nieces and nephew they not only change their minds every day as to what they want to be for Halloween, but they also like to dress up ALL THE TIME! These quick and easy Monsters Inc Halloween Costumes are a great project to create with the kids in an afternoon and will satisfy their need for dress-up time!

Monsters Inc Halloween Costumes

Here’s What You Will Need to create Monsters Inc Halloween Costumes:

Here’s How to Make Mike & Sully T-shirt Costumes:


Download MIKE GREEN MONSTERS INC PATTERNS and SULLY BLUE MONSTERS INC PATTERNS and print. Cut out patterns with scissors. Trace on Kunin® Classicfelt™ according to instructions on pattern sheets.

Use a permanent black marker to trace on the lighter colored felt and the Aquarellable white pencil to trace on the darker colored felt. TIP: Remember to cut INSIDE the lines for a neat and clean finished project.


Lay each t-shirt out on a flat surface. Slide a piece of cardboard between the front and back of the t-shirt. This will prevent the shirt from accidentally getting glued together (don’t ask me how I know this, just trust me!) Place all of the felt pieces on the t-shirt until you are pleased with the composition.


Individually flip each piece over, apply glue and attach to shirt. Press gently, not firmly. You want to attach the felt to the shirt, but not allow any glue to seep through the felt.

What type of Fabric Glue works best for T-Shirt Costumes?

The  E6000 Fabri-Fuse fabric glue is super easy to work with. No odor with a quick grab and a flexible bond, so the glue stretches with the trim and the clothing. No strings, no clogging, and a smooth flow of glue from the nozzle. This is glue is a game-changer! Edited to add that the  E6000 Fabri-Fuse fabric glue also washes well and keeps a tight bond.

I hope you will use my quick and easy Monsters Inc Halloween Costumes as a jumping-off point to showcase your Kunin Creativity to create some super cute t-shirts designed for dress-up!

Maybe some Minions or Emojis might be in my future! Felt is an easy, versatile, and forgiving medium that allows you to create affordable but trendy projects whether you are a beginner or an expert crafter!
