DIY Golden Snitch Costume Tutorial

I am a sucker for Harry Potter costumes and one of my favorites was this DIY Golden Snitch Costume that I made. I’m finally sharing the tutorial today.

Harry Potter Golden Snitch and Quidditch Player costumes at Rae Gun Ramblings

When I was pregnant with Teddy Daniel and I dressed up like a Snitch and Gryffindor Quidditch player.  This year I wanted to make Teddy dress up as a Snitch for his annual Harry Potter pictures.

Oh my gosh! So many fun cute baby Harry Potter inspired pictures. Rae Gun Ramblings

Wasn’t he so so cute!?

I’ll be sewing these live on Facebook but it’s so easy it’s basically a pillowcase dress. Just a couple of straight lines.

What You Need

  • Gold fabric (2Xs the width of the person and the length you want the costume plus 2 inches)
  • Gold Ribbon for tying the neck and bottom of the costume.
  • Sheer fabric for the wings

What to do

  1. Cut the gold fabric in half width-ize.
  2. With right sides together sew down the bottom 2/3 of each side.
  3. Fold under the top edge you’re making the armhole and sew under.
  4. Fold under 1 inch at the top and bottom edges to make a casing and sew.
  5. Thread in ribbon and tie.
  6. Cut wings. I just eyeballed it and made longish triangles. Sew to the top edge of the costume.
  7. If desired sew elastic to the bottom edge to serve as finger loops.

So easy right?
