Mad Crochet Lab’s Quick Halloween Treats!

mclhalloweentreats

I didn’t realize I had so many patterns that are perfect for this time of year.  But I do!  🙂  So here’s a quick little round up of patterns available from the Mad Crochet Lab that are either free or reasonably priced.  Each of these items is easy to make and doesn’t take much time, which is great if you are a procrastinator (not unlike myself).  😉

1. Spirited Pumpkin Finger puppet – makes a great treat for any little ghouls that visit you during the season.

2. Easy Amigurumi Spider – 2 Ways pattern – make this free pattern using the soft legs version so it’s nice and safe for little ones to hug and you’re sure to win them over, with or without offering candy!

3. Amigurumi Skull with Movable Jaw – A bit creepy, but size can vary depending on hook and yarn used.  Different looks are obtained by changing black for white in eye sockets.  A bit of wire is used to attach and make the jaw movable.  Make it as cute or scary as you like! Recommended for older trick or treaters.

4. Quick and Dirty Furry Beard – Last minute, free, quick, and easy costume option.  Also keeps your face warm!

5. Severed Finger Tricky Treats – Nothing could be easier to make and there are so many different ways to finish these free severed fingers- fabric paint, artificial nails, embroidery, you name it!  Fill with a lip balm, perfect for the cooler weather or with another small cylindrical treat!

Yarndango Finished Project X – Amigurumi Skull

Halloween is getting closer.  Much of the scuttle-butt in the crochet community has been about holiday projects because we all know what this means – that Halloween will be over before you know it and soon Christmas will be upon us.  Many people are switching gears to get holiday gifts made and trying to do it as quickly as possible.  It’s been stressful for everyone.  As a matter of fact, it’s been so stressful that I think I cracked my skull.

No, I’m not kidding.  This is serious!  I can’t believe that you don’t believe me!  Just take a look at my X-rays:

Okay, they’re not really X-rays.  And that’s not even the skull inside my head.  But it IS my skull in the sense that it is my own cro-ation!  I have wanted to make a skull for a while because there are some cute patterns out there, but none looked the way I saw it in my head.  I wanted something realistic but not too spooky, one that was not hollow, and one that had a movable lower jaw.  Yes, I’m picky!   I loved how Kim at Woolly Toons shaped her shrunken heads and that is what finally inspired me to get this pattern made.  With her permission, I used her idea for the nasal cavity because it was just so perfect for this project.  And so this guy was born.  I added the crack because I didn’t want to be the only cracked person in the Mad Crochet Lab.  What do you think of him?  I think I will call him Jofus.   🙂

Update:  I’ve made this skull my first pattern for money.  Since it is the first, I’m keeping the price low.  It’s available in PDF format that will be emailed to you for only $3.99!  Scroll down to purchase.  Also, here are some variations on the skull – made with a smaller hook/yarn and with white eye sockets.
