How to make a DIY caterpillar costume for a boy
There are several ways to make a caterpillar costume at home. The most relevant and tested include:
- To make a chick's beak we take a cap with a red peak. We glue or sew button eyes on top of the cap. Now the matter is left to the small. We put on a white turtleneck or t-shirt and red tights, leggings, knee-highs (of your choice). From above we throw a white cloak on the elastic bands, it will serve as the wings of the chick. The costume for the theater event for the boy is ready.
- If there is no red cap at home. Then we take an ordinary white or gray hat and we sew a homemade beak to it. We make it from thick fabric or red paper. Wear black dress pants and a white shirt or turtleneck to the bottom. Complement the look with a white satin wrap.
To create a costume, it is not necessary to buy special themed things. In the wardrobe of every boy there is a classic white shirt, turtleneck or t-shirt, which is suitable for a suit. Tights, leggings, knee-highs are suitable for the bottom. If not, then you can wear red shoes with socks of the same shade.
If you want to sew the kit yourself, then it will be necessary to make a pattern of a T-shirt, sweatshirt, shorts or pants. A white jumpsuit is a great option. Do not be afraid if the house does not have a typewriter or an overlock. All parts can be sewn by hand.
Sewing overalls is very simple. It is enough to take a pattern, transfer it to the fabric and sew two parts. Do not be afraid to experiment because the child’s outfit should be unique and interesting. For the outfit, choose white, black or gray.
For a warm version of overalls, an option from velor is suitable. Such a suit will be very warm and comfortable for the child. It does not constrain movement and helps the body breathe. We make the following pattern for the size of the child:
To begin with, we make a pattern on the whatman paper by the standards and cut it out. We transfer the pattern to the fabric and cut out all the details. We sew all parts manually or on an overlock.
We select and sew the bottom of the legs. If desired, you can pull the elastic into the seam and make a small side. It will look like folds on the legs. We also process the neck and sleeves. On the side we make a large cut and sew the lock. So, the jumpsuit will be easy to put on and take off from the child.
At the request of the child and mother, a hat, cap or mask can be made on the head. You can also cut a goose figure out of thick paper and make it a headband on the head. A cap with a red or orange visor will look comfortable and stylish.
To make wings, we need a white satin fabric. The size of the material should be calculated according to the height of the child. Take a plain square and cut out a circle from it. In the center we make a round hole for the head. At the edges, we cut the fringe with scissors. The cape for the outfit is ready.
If you want to make something unusual and spectacular, you can make two oblong wings of satin fabric and sew small feathers of paper or the same fabric on them. Sew the finished wings to the sleeves of the sweatshirt. They can also be made with elastic bands and put on hands. Red shoes or socks, knee-highs, leggings of the same shade should be worn on the feet.

In order not to waste money and look unique at the event, you can create an outfit yourself.
