  1. 1

    Put on the brown sweatpants and sweatshirt as you would any outfit.

  2. 2

    Cut out a round piece of felt big enough to cover the belly section of your sweatshirt.

  3. 3

    Before attaching the white section of felt to your sweatshirt, put the pillow stuffing in between the shirt and the felt to create the look of a round tummy.

  4. 4

    Pin or sew the white felt to the sweatshirt on the belly area.

  5. 5

    Cut out two 6-by-4-inch round ears with flat bottoms to attach to the head band.

  6. 6

    Cut out two white ear-shaped pieces that are about 1 inch smaller than the brown ear pieces.

  7. 7

    Glue the white pieces in the centre of the brown ones.

  8. 8

    Tape or glue the ear pieces to the brown headband so they stick straight up off of your head.

  9. 9

    Put the headband on your head.

  10. 10

    Colour the tip of your nose with brown eyeliner or costume make-up.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear white or brown shoes with this costume.
  • The colours could be replaced with any colour you choose -- get creative, especially if you are making a Care Bear costume.
  • You can attach cardboard to the ears to make them a little more sturdy if you feel that is necessary.
