I made this gumball machine Halloween costume in a doll size for Saige, my favorite American Girl Doll. I am thrilled with the cuteness and how easy it was to whip up. Doll play is a fabulous way to access self expression and creativity.
I used the following supplies and materials:
- Kunin Group Felt
- Sewing Machine
- Aleene’s Fabric Fusion
I freehand cut the machine pieces but used my new Lemonade alphabet die that I designed for Ellison (Sizzix) to make the number and letters. I used the inside of my flower die from the calendar set to make the circles for the gumballs.
I sewed it together and used ribbon to connect the front and back which makes it slide over the doll’s head. I love it.
I made her a trick-or-treat bag too.
Yay for Halloween and all things gumball machines,
