It all started with a giant bouncy ball, plaster fabric stuff, newspaper, glue, cheap yarn and gobs of hot glue

Then I worked up some yarn hair.


side view:

front view with a picture of her hand knit trick or treat bag that looks as if she is knitting it from herself  Grin Look at those huge neon knitting needles!

close up of ball detail:

We're not sure if the hair will make it for Halloween night, it kind of bugs her a little. The ball is surprisingly light and pretty flexible considering the plaster. I wish I had some daytime photos of it in action but these will have to do!

Oh!  I saw your pictures in the Picture Hosting area and I was like "WHERE IS THAT POSTED??!!!"   I LOVE it!  It's sooo cute and such a great crafty idea.  I'm a bit partial, because I knit, but, really, it's awesome.
