Please scroll to the very bottom of this page for today’s free pumpkin candy bucket pattern.
Imagine my surprise when I went to print this pattern recently and discovered that (at least in the 5 inch doll area of the website), the pumpkin jack o’lantern part of the pattern was still in JPG form! I had not yet converted it to a PDF!
So today’s pattern and tutorial are all about the pumpkin-shaped Halloween candy bucket (AKA jack o’lantern).
If you’d like to make today’s Halloween candy bucket, you’ll need some 1/4 inch emerald green velveteen ribbon for the strap/handle, some green embroidery floss for the decorative stitching, along with one swatch of orange craft felt and another swatch of black of craft felt.
These little candy buckets are great for gift giving, like you might give to your secret pals at the office or just to leave a little token of friendship on someone’s desk at work.
So without further ado, let me give you my Halloween candy bucket free PDF sewing pattern for little dolls…
