Miss Piggy’s Pigs in Space costume wouldn’t be complete without the oh-so-retro uniform decal on the front.
It’s a simple logo – a piggy face, a circle, and a lightning bolt. Here’s an illustration I worked up:
Now, for my Pigs in Space costume, I wanted to make the decal out of felt – these are Muppets, after all. So to make things a little easier, I created a PDF of the individual components of the decal, so they could be traced onto felt for easy cutting.
Magenta Felt (or hot pink or red)
Light Pink Felt
Pigs in space logo Template
Print out the template above and cut out the components.
Trace each component onto its respective felt, and cut each piece out.
Next, glue each piece in place – I just used Elmers Glue – and then place under a heavy, flat object (like a book) until the glue sets and the felt is securely laminated. Be sure to protect your table and book by using scrap paper if you think the glue might bleed through the felt!
If you’re an overachiever, you may feel the need to do a little stitching, just to be sure the felt is good and secure.
Then, with a permanent black marker or pen, finish the details on the piggy face. (Cutting out the pig snout from the template is helpful for tracing it in the right spot)
And there you have it! Attach the decal to your First Mate Piggy uniform dress and it’s ready to go!
Oh, and I realize there should be 6 white stars surrounding the decal…we’ll see if I get around to cutting out some stars to add to this costume. It’s the small things that seem to be the most difficult to finish!
