Baby Bat Costume

To make a baby bat costume, simply have the following materials:

  • Black long sleeve onesie
  • Black felt
  • Black knit fabric
  • Stripped leg warmers
  • Gray felt
  • White chalk

Once you have these materials, lay out the black long sleeve onesie and stretch the arms out. Afterward, measure and cut out wing shapes for the arms. In order to help others see the creativity of the bat costume, use white chalk to draw lines on the wings. Next, use white thread to sew a stitch onto the wings and hand sew the wings into the underarms and body of the onesie. To make the hat, you can look at videos online or try your hand at it. Once you’ve finished the black hat by using the black knit fabric, use pieces of black felt to cut two pieces for ears. You’ll sew them to the hat and voila, you’ve got a baby bat costume!
