I was going through some old photos and realized that I never shared Austin’s funny baby costume from a few years ago. It’s way too cute not to share, so better late than never. I created some templates, so you can make this game boy baby costume yourself. It’s so easy and inexpensive to make! It also makes a great last minute baby costume.
So apparently I was stressed with a baby on the night of Halloween and I only got this one picture of him wearing. it. Haha! He looks scared. Still cute though! Awe, I miss him being so little!
To make this funny baby costume, you’ll need:
- free templates (instructions to download are at the bottom of this post)
- white onesie
- felt – light gray, dark gray, black, and red
- Heat n Bond
You can make this costume no-sew by using Heat n Bond Ultrahold, but the pieces won’t stay on very well. Since the onesie is stretchy, the fabric will stretch under the felt, and the edges will peel up. Fine for a one night costume, which is what I did. You can use Heat n Bond Lite if you would like to try sewing the pieces on instead. The templates I created were for my 6 month old, so you might need to print the file out at a different size, depending on the onesie you use.
First, trace the templates on the paper side of the Heat n Bond. Note that the pieces on the pattern are reversed.
Iron each piece of Heat n Bond, paper-side-up, onto your felt.
Cut out all of your pieces.
Peel off the paper backing.
Iron the pieces onto your onesie with the Heat n Bond side down. If you want the pieces to stay, and used the lite Heat n Bond, sew through them.
That’s it! Such an easy last minute baby costume! My sister-in-law joked that I finally found a way to make my husband want to play with the baby. Har har!
