22  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pumpkin Head with Tutorial Link on: August 18, 2009 10:00:50 AM



I know Halloween is just around the corner.  Grin It is one of my absolute favorite holidays, but I unfortunately do not have any decorations.  Cry We live such a nomadic lifestyle that I think most of our decorations end up on the curbside or given away whenever we have to move.

So if your strapped for cash like us and want to make your own little pumpkin decoration for your house, here is a little pumpkin head tutorial. (I was going to make him some arms and legs, but I liked him so much like this I decided not to. If I get requested to, I will post an arm and leg pattern to go with him). Just click on my blog link at the bottom for the tutorial! Enjoy!

Thanks!  Grin I did make the pattern myself, but I'm still working out some kinks...like how to keep that yarn from shedding so much! He's starting to go bald! lol

Update: I modified the dragon pattern I originally had cause I hated stitching in the ears in black yarn. Just seemed to take too long. Let me know what you think of these new ones compared with the old ones down at the bottom.

I've started making some mythical creatures just for myself. Here is my latest creation..





I'm having some trouble with the yarn I got. I like the feathery texture it creates but it sheds like crazy. Anyone have any suggestions to an alternative brand other than the Yarn Bee brand I purchased??

 Grin Thanks! They were both a lot of fun to make. Hope the kids love 'em.

I made my niece a blonde fairy doll using a pattern I purchased from CrochetFaery. I modified the ears, arms, and feet. Overall I think she turned out really well.
