A word from Carissa, the 'Cabbage Patch Baby' costume creator:
Ever since I found out I was going to be a mom I was looking forward to dressing up my baby this halloween. My little girl Allison is 8 months old and has the perfect round face and rolly polly arms to be a cabbage patch doll. I was at one of my friends homes and she had a beanie for her little girl that looked like a cabbage patch doll. A light bulb turned on and I ran with it. After my friend made me the hat I found a little dress that looked like one a cabbage patch baby would wear. Then I began replicating a box after the box that my doll came when i was a little girl. I also found some help online from looking at pictures of boxes. I went to fedex, picked up a shipping box then painted it yellow and green. Then I printed off the logo from the internet and modge podged it on the box. The finishing touch was the green fabric that i covered Allisons stroller in to replicate the background of the cabbage patch boxes. We had so much fun showing her off this halloween and it was very affordable to make which was nice since we were on a tight budget.
