My son, who happens to be named Mac, wanted to go as a Big Mac. I decided to make his costume out of a purchased zip front hoodie.
My friend made her son's french fry costume to match!
Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onion on a sesame seed bun.
(I didn't add the "special sauce" because it was 3 am and I didn't want it to get all over him and everyone else at school the next day. When people asked where the sauce was he told them that was "private". Ha ha. I love 12 year olds!
Making the costume:
Start with a hoodie the color of the bun $9.99. I love a bargain.
Tape where you want the burger patties to go with arms down so they match.
Cut open the sleeves so you have access to sew it all down
I cut brown stretchy suede in 4 /12 strips and stitched polyester fleece strips to it to make the onions. Then I sewed them about where the tape strips are. I turned them under. I recommend just stitching close to the edge and not being so picky if you are in a time crunch.
I also took green fleece for the lettuce. Cut a big strip, gather it, cut it in pieces and place it strategically around the patties. sew it down.
Pickles: Take darker green fleece. I cut circles out of freezer paper, ironed it (low setting, don't melt your fleece!) to the fleece and stitched around in a close zig zag satin stitch. Then I sewed the triangles in the center to make a pickle shape. Cut in pieces and sew to the burgers.
Take orange fleece for the cheese. Cut big triangles. I stitched two layers together and stitched it down.
Sew the sleeves back together. If you aren't lazy, sew the cuffs back on where you cut them off the sleeves because they are too long. I'm lazy.
Pin pillow forms in the front and back with safety pins to make the burger fat.
There you have it! A Big Mac Costume ala Gingerquilts.
