Step 1: Measure Roomba

Picture of Measure Roomba
If you're being careful, use a measuring tape to get the diameter of your Roomba at its widest, and the height of your Roomba at its tallest. That way, your patterns are less seat-of-the-pants. I was not so careful, and just traced the patterns directly from the Roomba.

My girlfriend already thinks the stock roomba is cute in its mousy movement... and calls it "Roomba" in the first person. I can't put a costume like this on it or it'll be too cute! Also, I was wondering if you covered the vacuum exhaust or if you left an undocumented hole for it? Wouldn't want people to cover that up...

Oh, good question. I don't remember, and don't have the costume on hand to check. I didn't end up using the costume that much -- it was cute, yes, but kept falling off.

This is adorable! And very clever!
Oh, I love this! When I get a Roomba I'm definitely making costumes for it. :D
I was expecting of costume to make you look like a Roomba, but this is way better. I just gotta ask, Does it only suck up cheese now?
