This homemade costume for babies entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jenna, the 'Baby Grandma' costume creator:
My 15 month old daughter loves playing with her Great Grandma's walker when we visit her. So I thought it would be cute to make my daughter her own walker and dress her up as a Grandma/little old lady. She is also not quite walking on her own yet so I thought this would also work great allowing her the support to walk on her own!
I bought the sweater in one size larger than her own at a used kids clothing store. I bought some fabric from Jo-Anns and sewed a simple long skirt for her to wear with it. I found the stretchy bead pearl necklace from Hobby Lobby.
For the wig I sewed gray yarn onto a knit hat at the "part" and then hot glued it to the rest of the hat and shaped it into a bun in the back. I used a ball similar to the size of her head to hold the hats shape while I glued it to the hat.
For the walker I bought 1" pvc pipes and joints from Lowes as well as two wheels to attach to the front. I spray painted it with a silver Rustoleum spray. I made the walker approx 15"H x 11" to be the appropriate size for my daughter.
