Spooky Owl

I just got this new app that allows you to put fun movie filters over your photos and I'm having a blast! It is making this photo of my hand sewn owl look way more spooky cute with the moving fog and bright October moon!

October Sketchin'

I've been starting to edit a manuscript of mine called Drac Cat, and it inspired me to have a little fun with one of the characters from my story. So here is a sketch of Young Drac playing around with his candy pack!

Spooky Door

Since I love October, I definitely go all out with the decorating. I have some handmade spooky eyeball door-handle covers all around the house.

So I thought I would share! This particular one is among some of the first objects I ever crocheted!

It's also kinda funny how you can totally see my reflection in the door handle!

Happy Friday!

Just a little October joke for Friday. I hope you are staying dry if you're in San Francisco!

Every now and then I like to take a step outside of my own work and try to follow someone's patterns. I find that it helps me to become more inspired to work on my own projects, not to mention, you can always learn something new from someone's work!

These are from a book called Zombie Felties. Yes, I'm serious. A whole how to book on making handsewn miniature felt zombies.

I made the traditional zombie and of course, the pumpkin zombie. Naturally had to have a spooky-cute photoshoot right after. Soooo enjoy-yay Halloween!

Back of the Postcard

I just wanted to share the back of the Halloween mailer I did for my agent at the end of September. 

I also think it is interesting to show the sketches and thought processes that go into to creating my illustrations, it's something I need to do more of so I included those as well.

I'm sure all the cards have gone out by now, but here is what the whole card looked like all put together!

Easy Pumpkin Pattern

Here is a minute long time lapse video of a simple pumpkin pattern I came up with. People have expressed a desire for this pattern, so I included the pattern along with step by step instructions here on my blog!

Just click on the 'crochet patterns' tab above!

If you decide to make a pumpkin using my pattern, I would love for you to share! Just give credit please! Thanks!
