DIY Skittle Costume

Hey everyone!  Halloween is tomorrow.  How many of you celebrate it?  We don't, however we did get invited to a costume party.  The theme was food.  We weren't quite sure what to do until the idea struck us: a Skittle!  This is a super easy, last minute costume idea.  And who doesn't like Skittles?
You're going to need:
-fabric (we used fleece, but whatever you have on hand will work)
-felt with a sticky back (you can find this at Walmart, Michaels, and other craft and fabrics stores)
-dinner plate
-sewing machine or needle and thread

Fold the fleece in half.  Lay a dinner plate on the fleece and trace it.  Cut out the circle.

 You should now have to circles.

 Right sides together, pin the edges.  Leave a 6 inch hole at the top (for the head) and at the bottom (for the legs) and a 3 inch hole on the sides (for the arms).

 What the sewing should look like.

Right side out the fabric and topstitch right near the edge.  DO NOT sew the holes together.  Topstitch around the holes to hold back the extra back.  We didn't topstitch around the armholes because it was to small for our sewing machine, but it you want, you can hand sew that part.

 On the back of the sticky felt draw a BACKWARDS "S."  It's important that you draw it backwards so that when you stick it on it's the right way.

 Cut out the "S", peel the backing off, and stick on to the fabric.
You're done!  We wore a white tank, denim leggings, and lace up boots with the costume.

We would love to see pictures if you made this or used it as inspiration for a similar costume?  (Maybe M&M's?)  Please either email a picture to or post it on Instagram and tag us @sodapopstreet and include the hashtag #adollabledollscostume

Have fun!
