Materials Needed for Donut Costume DIY:
1 yard tan fleece
1/2 yard dark brown fleece

scraps of fleece of various colors for the sprinkles
fabric glue (optional)
Donut Costume DIY Tutorial:
Step 1 – Cut out the following of the Donut Costume
out of tan fleece:
around 20 ‘sprinkles’ of various colors
Glue batting to the wrong side of one of the ‘fronts’. Set aside.
To sew on the doughnut costume sprinkles just zig zag around the edges.
Step 4 – bring the donut costume together
Center ‘icing’ on the right side of the remaining ‘front’.
Gently push batting slightly inside the seam line so that none sticks out. Stitch around outside and inside edges.
Pin back to the doughnut and stitch in place.
Additional ideas: Use glitter or spray glitter to add a little sparkle to your doughnut costume. Have multiple kiddos dress as donuts and help decorate to personalize each one! Felt is a fabric that would also work for this pattern and can often be a more affordable alternative. In addition there are many specialty felt squares that you can use for the sprinkles for your donut,
