|Spider Web and Spider: Mommy and Baby Costume|
Tip: make head hole small at first. It can always be enlarged if needed.
Then, I made a spider costume for the baby. I used gray flannel, and traced a newborn sized outfit onto the fabric, cut, and sewed it up. The baby's arms and legs would count as 4 out of 8 "legs." I then cut, sewed, stuffed, and attached 4 extra legs to make a total of 8. It looked great. But I made it while I was still pregnant; therefore, I had no idea how old or how big the child would be at Halloween.
Tip: do not assume. We all know what happens.
Because...when it came time for trick-or-treating, the outfit was much too small. As you can see from the picture, it didn't fit his torso, so I folded it down and had his real arms be the final 2 of the 8 "legs."
However, if done right, this idea could make a perfect adult Halloween costume, as well as a beautiful baby/kids Halloween costume. You just have to do it right!
Alright, I'm off to celebrate Christmas! Ho ho ho!
