This Homemade Caterpillar Costume was all material purchased and hand made to fit my little caterpillar. It was made to slip on over the head with the back part being stuffed with cotton batting and the stripes were a tan fuzzy material added to give it the fuzzy appeal.
For the hat I took a black beanie hat and sewed it onto it the green hood that was separate from the rest of the costume and had Velcro under the chin to keep it in place. Add some pipe cleaners for antennas, black strips on the body for legs and your done.
The cutest part was watching her walk and her little body wiggled. Its a nice warm costume for all those northern trick or treaters and was loved by everyone. Have fun and enjoy.
I wanted to make my little girl a fun and funky caterpillar costume, so I sewed bright donut shaped pillows out of fun fur with elastic bands on the top and bottom of each one. Then I attached them to each other with tights sticking out in between stuffed with stuffing. Her legs and arms were sticking out so she wore striped tights and a striped turtleneck.
The hat was sewn out of the fun fur again with an elastic band under her chin and around her head, the attena's were dowels with pom poms on top. The outfit slipped over her head.
Her Daddy was a cocoon and I wore butterfly wings.
