PATTERN DETAILS

I love dressing up for Halloween! I always seem to come up with the best costume idea ever in April, which I've completely forgotten by October. As a bar hopping adult the classic costumes just don't cut it anymore - you've got to be super clever or elaborate to stand out in the crowd. But it's good to have some old standbys on hand! A witch, a cat, Frankenstein's Monster, and a fishbowl astronaut are easy to put together and better than nothing! So if you find yourself scrambling for costume ideas on October 30th, look no further than your newly stitched Halloween decoration for inspiration. Finished Size Intended for 6" embroidery hoop.
