Fall Sewing Project Tutorial: How to make an "m & m" Halloween Costume for an 18" American Girl Doll
 

Free Halloween Sewing Project Tutorial:
 
How to make an "m & m" Halloween Costume for an 18" American Girl Doll
 
You Will Need:
 
white and green felt
orange and black fabric for bag
ribbon for bag and mask
basic sewing supplies
 
Directions for this cute m&m Halloween costume for your American girl doll also include the mask and trick-or-treat bag. No need for patterns; a quarter and a luncheon plate are to be used as patterns to make this m&m costume!
 
 
Let's make the American Girl Doll Halloween m&m Costume:

Using a luncheon plate as your pattern, trace and cut 2 circles from green felt fabric.

Sketch a lower case m on a piece of paper that measures about 4". Pin and cut one out of white felt.
Pin the "m" to one of the green circles.

Sew around the outer edge of the "m". You can use a zig-zag stitch or a straight stitch, which ever you prefer.

Place the front and back of the m&m pieces together with the pretty sides showing.

Hold the m&m up to the doll and place pins at the shoulder points as shown in the photo.

You will not be sewing in-between the 2 pins. This is where the dolls head will fit to put the costume on.

Then measure DOWN 2.5" from each pin around the outer edge of the pumpkin and place another pin. Do this to both sides.

(You are creating a shoulder seam to hold the costume on with this step.)

Stitch the 2.5" on each side of the green circle. Leave the top open for her head to go through.

(I forgot to take a photo of this step with the m&m costume, so I'm using the American girl doll pumpkin costume photo.) This will help make the costume fit better on the doll.
Use black felt to make the Halloween mask for your American girl doll pumpkin costume. Let's make the American Girl Doll Halloween mask:

Trace the outer edge of a quarter on a piece of black scrap fabric.

Use black felt to make the Halloween mask for your American girl doll pumpkin costume. Leaving a 1/2" space in-between trace another circle around a quarter as shown in the photo.
Use black felt to make the Halloween mask for your American girl doll pumpkin costume. Cut around each circle as shown to create a mask.

Cut little circles for the dolls eyes to see out of the center of each circle in the mask.

Pin and sew a piece of ribbon on each end of the mask as shown.
