With Halloween approaching my pattern writing has been cranked up a notch. There are just so many wonderful things to make and amigurumi really lends itself to the strange and slightly spooky creations.
My problem has always been making my creations look scary for some reason they always end up more cute than creepy.
First up this pile of pumpkins came from a sketch I did in my ideas book. The sketch was very creepy the pumpkins looked really evil, the top one had teeth and was dripping blood onto the lower ones who were not happy at all.
I even treated myself and used my hand dyed orange yarn to make them bright and evil but then I came to sewing them and created their faces and they just went cute
Next up is a creation that's been hanging around in the bottom of my crochet bag for a good while. She was gonna be part of the trick or treat dolls set but I didn't get her finished in time. I have over the past months lost both her arms and a leg so when it came to finishing her off I had more work to do than I thought. I hoped a bride of Frankenstein doll would naturally turn out quite creepy but no she had a mind of her own and turn into the cutest little girl.
Patterns for the new amigurumi will be in my etsy shop soon
