Sam – Free Crochet Pattern

Free Crocheted Sam from Trick or Treat

I’ve been busy making giant knitted blankets for a local store. I tried the first one with Jumbo Knitting Needles. It worked, but I felt the stitches were too tight. The second one, I used a method of hand knitting.

Hand Knitted Blanket

It gave me the look I was going for and was so much faster.

I’m still typing all my patterns. This has not been tested. If you make him, use #drunkenauntwendy. I love to see your work.

Notes:

Pennywise 2017 – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet Pattern for the newest Pennywise

Have you seen the new IT? It is entertaining. I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I am quite partial to the book. Except the ending, I hate the end of it.

All of last year’s Minis have been posted, this year I thought I would make a new set. This little mini incorporates some needle felting as well. It made the hair so much easier.

Go to Instagram to vote on the next one. Right now, I am working on Annabelle. I might run out of Horror Icons. I’ve added a new way to join my mailing list. It should be on the side menu. Use #drunkenauntwendy if you post a picture.

Eyeball Wreath

Wreath from plastic eyeballs

20131006-205119.jpg

I’ve been trying to stay crafty lately, but my crochet has been suffering. I don’t know how everybody does this with kids constantly underfoot. We tried today to work on Halloween decorations. It was really hard to relinquish creative control to other hands, especially little ones.

Here’s our end result. I got the idea off of Pinterest. It was super simple.

Materials
Grape Vine wreath
Halloween garland
Black spray paint
Plastic eyeballs
Glue gun

I sprayed the wreath first and let it dry. Then I wrapped it with the garland and glued on the eyes with a glue gun. Super Easy!

If I hadn’t had assistance, the eyes would have been placed with a touch more care.
