Intro: "Sam" From Trick 'r Treat
Trick r Treat is an awesome Halloween movie and I wanted to make a Sam doll for my Halloween haunt. Starting with just an idea, here's what I came up with.
Step 1: Materials
Sam is made from:
Thrift Store Toddler Onesie
I had to dye the Onesie Orange because there aren't a lot of orange Onesies out there.
Step 2: Fixing the Feet, Building the Frame
I turned the newly orange outfit inside out, then cut off and reversed the feet so that the buttons were at the back. I sewed on the patches, and then built the PVC frame.
Step 3: Head/Eyes
I then measured the burlap around the ball and sewed on his eyes and other stitching.
Step 4: Hands/Treat Bag
Almost done? Not hardly. Next I made a small sack out of burlap and attached it to one arm using the baling wire. Then I made a hand and attached it to the other wrist.
Step 5: Sucker and Stuffing
I made the sucker from a piece of scrap wood and a dowel. I stuffed the outfit with newspaper to give him some body and the mannequin is done!
