Witchy the Crochet Witch Doll

We’re halfway through October and Halloween enthusiasm is everywhere! I love it! As I’ve said in previous posts, my family is always BIG into Halloween and I do mean BIG. So big, in fact, that my youngest daughter Iris had an imaginary friend based off of a sweet little witch her mind came up with when she was three. She called this friend “Witchy” and oh the many stories she would tell us about her! Sometimes Witchy would fly along our car as we drove, other times she’d spend the night next to her keeping all of the monsters away. Her love of that witch knew no bounds! One day she approached begging me to create a crochet version of Witchy. She described her every detail making sure to always tell me that Witchy was a “nice” witch and a “good friend”. Of course I had to come up with this sweet little witch for her and now I have it available for you to share with any little one in your life! So… Meet Witchy the Crochet Witch Doll!  Continue reading Witchy the Crochet Witch Doll

Creepy Eyeball Hat

As each day draws Halloween closer I find myself absolutely obsessed with the aisles and aisles of spooky props in all of the department stores near my home. My house is decorated top to bottom with spooky skeletons, haunted houses, pumpkins, and more! Not only must the house be dressed up, however, but people too! That’s why I created this simple beanie. It’s fully functional to keep you warm during those chilly fall days, but also has a bit of a creepy vibe to it! So without further ado… The Creepy Eyeball Hat.  Continue reading Creepy Eyeball Hat

Real Stem Pumpkins

Happy September and happy first pattern post to this blog! I’ve been thinking long and hard about what types of patterns I’d like to start posting here and decided what better month than September to start? September for my is always a favorite month, not only because it’s my birthday month, but also because in our household it kicks off the official fall/Halloween season! Fall is a great time for many reasons, but one of my absolute favorite reasons are pumpkins. Pumpkin farms, pumpkin pickin’, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin treats… You get the picture! I’ve got pumpkins on my mind! And so for this blog’s first official free pattern I opted to share with you one of my favorite things to crochet during the fall season… Real stemmed crochet pumpkins! These are super easy to make and work up very quickly! You’ll need a real stem to create these, but if you’re like me you’ve already saved last year’s pumpkin stems for crafting. If not, you’d be surprised at how many people you may know who already have some! Just ask around! So without further ado…
