Spooky cute Halloween projects

So I love Halloween! It's my favorite holiday to decorate for, and this year is no exception...
I have a few Halloween themed patterns available, but this one was made just for me. This little wolf boy has been on my mind for a while (I think I first sketched him out last year) and I'm so glad I finally took the time to create him! I did some experimenting to get his hair just the way I pictured it, using a latch hook technique to attach wool yarn in 5 different colors to the head. Then brushing the hair with a wire pet brush, and finally working the hair rubbing and twisting in my fingers until it was the shape I wanted. As an accent I also added quilting thread, felt, and fabric strips to the hair in strategic spots to get a slightly "wild" look. I used the same process on the tail... and yes it took a really long time, but he is just what I wanted!

What are you working on for Halloween? What are you thinking about making...
Are you like me, do you have one of those projects that just doesn't make the cut year after year? Let's hear about it!


  1. He's so adorable! I love werewolves and this one is just the best! Too bad you're not sharing his pattern.

    I'm so jealous of your skills!

  2. He is the most wonderful little wolwerine I have ever seen, in fact he even beats Hugh Jackman. I can only hope that the patterns ends up in Your Etsy shop, but I understand if You would like to keep him for Yourself.

  3. Bueno, aquí en Argentina no se festeja el Halloween -solo como una fiesta importada y, por eso mismo, es algo raro y tiene poca relación con la cultura de este lugar. Sin embargo, me gusta el sentido del Halloween (en mi cultura de Galicia existe esta fiesta pero tiene otro nombre) y me encanta también este muñeco: es fascinante!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. very cute. I am making your free patterns of Padma and Manual for my new great grandbabies, and loving your patterns. Thank you so much for sharing them. Gerrie
