Twisty – Free Crochet Pattern


Happy Friday to everyone. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I hope you are enjoying my Princess Bride dolls. They are making me oddly happy.

American Horror Story Freak Show featured the lovely clown, Twisty. He was quite the creepy clown. Here’s a little mini version of him. Remember, the pattern is not tested. Let me know if something is off. If you post it on Instagram use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find it.  I don’t know why the spacing went all weird at the end.

Mummy – Free Crochet Pattern


This week, I am finishing up my testing of Brain and making sure that there are no issues with the pattern. I should have a kit finished by the beginning of next year if you want to make your own brain. Remember, there is exclusive content for those that are mailing list members.

Questions:

  1. What would you like for me to add to the blog? More patterns? Videos?
  2. Mailing list members, would you like an email when I post a new pattern?
  3. What should I make next: Princess Bride? Ghostbusters? Female comic heros? Avengers Infinity War? Leave a comment, Let me know.

I am also working on another faux taxidermy head. This one is a rabbit. The pattern is confusing the crap out of me, but I am plugging along.

Now for the free pattern. He stumbles along and hopes his wrappings don’t come undone. If you make him, post it on Instagram. Use #drunkenauntwendy so I can find him and give you lots of love.

Super cute Mummy. This one actually brings a lot of people to my table whenever I am at a show. It brings them in, but no one ever buys him. He is really sad about that.

This little guy is approximately 8″ when finished. You can make him smaller or larger depending on your hook and yarn size.

Bride of Frankenstein – Free Pattern


Halloween is almost upon us. I’m done with the mini-monsters and I will be moving on to Mythical Creatures for an online contest. I’m still typing up the patterns on a regular basis. I’ll try to keep to my current schedule and post them regularly.

I’m also teaching myself how to make soap. It was a project with the kids that I am expanding on.

img_3403
Ohio State Soap is a must in my area
img_3397
Christmas Jello soap.

img_3392
Super cute owl soap.
img_3382
First soaps with the kids.

The goat’s milk soap doesn’t take the colors as well. I’m not sure whether I like the goat’s milk vs. the glycerin that is clearer so the colors are brighter. I am also adding scents, but very lightly as I don’t like strong scents.

Here’s your Bride of Frankenstein Pattern. Again it hasn’t been tested. Join the mailing list for exclusive content. Use #drunkenauntwendy if you make it so I can find it and give you crochet love.
