Nelly, a Pleasant Co. vintage American Girl doll is a fan of the Wizard of Oz, so she wanted to be the Tin Man for Halloween last year. She’s carrying her own tiny plastic pumpkin so she can collect candy while Trick or Treating. She decided to pose next to the biggest pumpkin she’s ever seen. I made her costume for her using the pattern from Joan Hind’s Storybook Characters sewing patterns book. Her plastic pumpkin was one of six sold together as holiday novelty items at a discount store.
