Who doesn’t love donuts?! I’ve designed this easy to sew fleece donut costume, perfect for Halloween or school dress up days.
The donut is sewn from tan coloured fleece and is decorated with fleece chocolate icing and coloured sprinkles. The costume has a hidden layer of batting for a 3D effect.
It is comfortable to wear and slips easily on and off and can be worn over bulky clothing (for those of us up north who often trick or treat in the snow!).

Materials Needed for Donut Costume DIY:
1 yard tan fleece
1/2 yard dark brown fleece
1/2 yard batting (I used 8 oz high loft polyester batting – if you have some large fleece scraps you could use a couple layers of fleece as an alternative)
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
Step 2 – Prep the donut costume for sewing
Glue batting to the wrong side of one of the ‘fronts’. Set aside.
Sew or glue sprinkles on the right side of the brown ‘icing’.
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’.
Pin and stitch in place along the outside and inside edges.
Clip two fronts together, with batting sandwiched in between.
Gently push batting slightly inside the seam line so that none sticks out. Stitch around outside and inside edges.
Step 5 – add the back to the donut costume
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,
