He’s the ghost with the most. Did everyone else love this movie as much as I did? And the cartoon? Sometimes I sing Day-O out of nowhere. People might think I’m a bit nuts.

You can’t really tell from this picture, but I gave him glow in the dark teeth. At night he is spooky, but awesome.

Free Pattern Friday – Billy from Saw

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen all my mini-monsters. I love scary movies. I love October because it ends with Halloween. I’ve been having a lot fun with these guys. I’ve made 10 that will be typed up and make it onto the blog. Samara, the Babadook and Freddy Krueger are already up.

The movie series Saw pits the victims against elaborately constructed “Games” to make them learn the value of life. These games are often introduced by a ventriloquist puppet.

Frostina and Sparky

I think these two might be my favorite. The pictures don’t show how sparkly she is. I also love their expressions and striped arms. Since they are hot and cold, Katy Perry music runs through my head when I look at them.

Look at all this sparkly hair.

I also love how long I made the arms.

I present Mango and Tango. Tango is taking his monster lady friend out on the town dancing. Here’s hoping their tails don’t get tangled.

I tried new things on these two. I added eyelids:

2015-07-13 22.52.52

And I used doll eyelashes. This shows Mango without her lashes:

2015-07-19 00.13.30

I’m still deciding whether I like the eyelashes or not.

The pattern will be free for two weeks. Let me know if you have any issues, problems or if anything is confusing. I have several more monsters in the works. If these two aren’t your favorites, I’m sure I’ll eventually find one you like. Also, I will be breaking it up as follows: Three sets of monster patterns and then something else for one week, repeat. This is until I get tired of monsters.

(Updated 8/7/15)

Thanks to everyone who tried out the pattern. I didn’t get any complaints so I’m going to post it to Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy.

The new monster pattern Seneca will be up today.
