Hi, friends! Happy Halloween!
I wanted to share some pictures of the pumpkins that me and my guy carved this year, since it’s one of my very favourite Halloween activities! Over the last two or three years, we’ve started doing themed pumpkin carving, and since the Hogwarts Ragdoll Collection was released just a few weeks ago I was still very much in a magical mood, so we did Harry Potter themed pumpkins!
I also had a little free time last week and was definitely feeling in the Halloween spirit, so I decided to whip up this teeny tiny little ghostie guy! I actually used the pattern for Julia Jellyfish from the Sea Creature Keychain Collection, which was one of the very first patterns that I released on the blog. The only changes I made were to use a smaller crochet hook (2.25mm instead of 3.5mm), a light weight cotton yarn in White, which resulted in my little ghost coming out even more miniature than the original jellyfish, and I tied the tips of the little “tentacles” (in this case, ghostie arms!) together to make it look like he’s flying through the air.
For a last minute little project, I think he makes a pretty convincing little ghost, don’t you? Or maybe he just looks like a jellyfish dressed up as a ghost. Either way, he’s pretty cute! And he’s so small that you could easily make two and wear them as earrings!
Here are the materials I used:
- 2.25mm hook (I use THESE hooks);
- Light weight generic cotton yarn in White;
- 6mm Safety Eyes;
- Tapestry Needle;
Here are some progress shots of Ghostie. I didn’t include any in the original pattern post, so these might be helpful.
