My baby’s favorite toy is her playschool gloworm toy, it also have a sentimental meaning for me (my baby was super tiny when she was born, the gloworm’s head was a lot bigger than hers, so this toy reminds me how well she is doing and how small and fragile she was).
We decided to make her a Homemade Baby Gloworm Costume. We went to the fabric store (and took the toy with us to pick the right colors), got the fabric, tread, elastic, sew-on snaps and fabric sheet to print& fuse.
I used an onesie and newspaper to make the patterns of the jacket and diaper cover (I got the idea from a video of patterns on youtube) and for the hat I used a pattern that I found online.
Also I purchased glow sticks to put them inside her diaper cover, this came out really cool! So after some hours of cutting and sewing and about $15 dollars spent we ended up with a very cute costume and an unforgettable first Halloween for my baby girl!
Comments for Coolest Homemade Baby Gloworm Costume
We made my daughter a baby Glowworm costume, fashioned after the old-school original toy. It was a bunting costume, since she was only 3 months. Kept her arms and legs nice and warm and bundled up.
I got some soft green material and lined it. Stuffed the ribs of the Glowworm body so that they were puffy. There was velcro in the back to get her in and out. I was originally going to put her arms in the Glowworm arms, but she didn't really care for that. I stuffed them instead and left her arms inside the body.
I made a little green hat with translucent lining around the face. I sewed a string of battery operated lights into the lining around her face so that you could flip the lights on and it would look like her face was glowing like the original Glowworm toy!
The Baby Glowworm Costume was super cute. She was happy and snug as a bug... or worm... all night!
