This wraps up my Halloween sewing projects for this year. Earlier I showed you how to make a cat costume for fashion dolls, a ghost costume for miniature dolls, and now I’m bringing this segment to a close with this adorable jack-o’-lantern Halloween candy bucket or candy bag.
It’s made of felt and ribbon, with just a touch of embroidery floss. Frankly, it’s so easy to make, I’ll be creating these with my middle schoolers at work this month. So I’ve placed this particular tutorial in my “Easy-Sew” section on my YouTube channel.
If your office has a Secret Santa or Secret Pal program, this would make a fantastic little gift basket for Secret Pal fall gift-giving. Just fill it with M&M’s and place it on your Secret Pal’s desk at work.
I hope you’ve enjoyed sewing for Halloween with me this year. I look forward to doing more fun craft projects as Christmas approaches!
If you’re searching for a different pattern, have a look at the Gallery Page. That’s the easiest way to search through all of my patterns to find what you want. Each image on the Gallery Page takes you to links for patterns and tutorials.
Need help printing my patterns? This link will take you to a tutorial showing you how to download my free, printable patterns.
Please note: you must enlarge the pattern to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects).
If you’re wondering why I make patterns and videos without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.
In case you haven’t heard, I have also designed commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. They have some new dolls in their line, including a new male doll, so you might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
I’ve also got a series of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to gather fabric, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, just like I do!
