As I'm expecting baby #2 in December, I need a pregnancy halloween costume, we always do a family theme for halloween costumes, so the pregnancy skeleton costume is a perfect way to involve my entire family, including baby #2! I could not believe how much those shirts cost, & of course I decided to make my own, since I'm a diy mama. I looked for several days for a free printable template to make a pregnancy skeleton shirt for Halloween this year & I have finally found one, I didn't have the time to draw a pattern/template myself, & I just didn't feel like drawing one so I did my research & have finally found a link to one. Thanks to this awesome mama for sharing her pattern/template. Its awesome!
Here is the link to her pattern/template:
The only problem I had with this template is the left ribs part did not show up, so I just copied & pasted the right ribs onto the empty page 5 & right clicked it, selected picture, flip horizontally. & then I printed all 5 pages on photo paper, as I want to keep my pattern for other projects, & to make my husbands too, he will have steak & beer on tho, instead of a baby. The photo paper is thicker than regular computer paper & it wont be hard to use as a template, I wont have to iron it onto the shirt or trace it onto freezer paper.
First, I am going to use white fleece, painted with glow in the dark fabric paint.
Then, I will be using my exacto knife to cut out the bones on the photo paper, and then tracing it onto the white fleece. Then cutting it out with scissors & an exacto knife. I will then arrange the fleece onto my black long sleeve shirt, & using fabric glue to glue it to the shirt. I will be adding a heart onto the adult ribs & onto the baby ribs, & gluing a bow onto the baby's head, since we are having a girl. & then I will allow it to dry & wear it on Halloween, & when we go to the Pumpkin farm this weekend.
I'm excited about this project, & I will post photos once it is done!
