So....This guy was made for a Dear friend of mine for a readathon. he's seven, and from what i understand, Loves him very much:) I made him from a white tee material and used fusible fleece, to make him softer and so I could sew him easier (still not great with stretch fabrics...) I embroidered a spider (that looks like an ant) on his right eye and used a button for his right.
The whole ghostie:)

Close up of the eye:

His Bottom reads"reading is BOO-Tiful" (I have a thing for bottoms:)

I just drew an open book and used the comic sans font from the computer. My writing is horrible, so I needed to use the computer for the font:)

And..He has a little friend:) A little ghost bear. I actually put him on a pin so he could be worn seperately by the owner if he wants. Plus, I put the little one together with Glow In The Dark thread and I've been told he really really glows. Yay!!!!!!And he says BOO on his belly

Hope everyone likes!!

that is the cutest ghost I've ever seen!  and the little ghost bear is so precious.  I like your spider/ant, it adds a little something to him; kinda brings to mind oogie boogie.

it's no surprise that his new owner loves him, I would, too!

this sweet darling goes to bed with my young man every night and he can't wait for the next "bring a cuddle friend to school" day so he can show him off to his friends! a total hit, thank you so much Daina!
