Crazy Caterpillar Costume

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.

  1. Hi, do you have more pictures of this costume? I am planning on being a caterpillar for Halloween, my workplace is doing the Alice in wonderland theme. I love your idea here and would love to see the back of the costume, and other views if possible.

    Thank you,

  2. I love this idea and was wondering if you have more pictures and can tell me how you did the green layer on top. I am going to try and make it for my 20 month old, so any extra help would be great. Thanks

  3. This looks great. My granddaughter is going to be a caterpillar in her school play and I would love to make this for her. Do you have more photos? From the back may be? Any specific advice so that I don’t mess it up?

    I look forward to your reply and thank you in advance.
