Make Your Own Skeleton Costume for Mommy-to-Be
When my oldest daughter came to town the week before Halloween, I knew we had to make her a costume! I mean, look at how cute she is!!
So many costume ideas for pregnant bellies were thrown out there! But, when I showed her this adorable SVG cut file from Etsy, we knew it was the one!
The day before she was supposed to fly home, she ran and got some inexpensive sweats from Walmart. Even though she’s due in just a few weeks, she’s wearing little boy-sized sweat bottoms! :-O
I was able to upload it into Cricut Design Space easily. I removed the lower two bones because Lexi is so tiny. We wanted the feet to be at the tip of her belly. We wanted the feet to POP, so I added a solid white shadow. We also wanted the heart to stand out, so we sliced the rib cage around it.
She looks beautiful!

The first thing I did was had Lexi put on the sweats to get an idea of how big I wanted the ribs to be.
I cut out the design using my Cricut. Then, Lexi put the sweats back on, and I taped the iron-on where I wanted it to be. She carefully took them back off, and I ironed it down.
Don’t forget to mirror your images!
I made a shadow block of the feet to make the blue POP off the black background.
I made them out of regular white HTV since I will be stacking the little feet on top of them. (You can’t stack on top of glitter iron-on.)
Oh, my goodness! Look at these cute little skeleton feet!
I ironed them on top of the white shadow.
I also added the blue heart to the rib cage at the point.
I cut out the leg and arm bones and ironed them on.
I used a Teflon sheet when ironing everything on.
Here is an unclose look at one of the bones.
Once you’re done ironing everything on, you’re finished!
This was so quick and easy! I was rushing when I ironed on the leg bones because Superman had just made a fire in our fire pit and I wanted to go out and enjoy it!
So, when Lexi put the sweats on the next day we noticed some of it was peeling. I gave it a good ironing and everything was good.
