Easy Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas bag crochet pattern

Needed a bag for a Nightmare Before Christmas themed Halloween outfit so I made this one real quick! A great easy project for Halloween and good practice for working in the round! You can also easily make this bag bigger to suit your needs or make just one side and use it for an appliqué on a scarf! This bag works up quickly and an experienced person could easily make it in a day.

Pyukumuku plush crochet pattern

I can't wait for Sun and Moon, I love the new designs (and redesigns) so far! Pyukumuku is extra cute and easy to make! A great pattern for a beginner, not too many pieces, not much sewing, and you only need a few colors!

Madoka Magica Sweets Witch Charlottle (Mogu mogu ver)

Charlotte the sweets witch mogu mogu version! It's amazing how fast you can get the last bit of something done when you put it away for 6 months >_> Honestly I think I was avoiding sewing on all the little red polka dots! This is a pretty easy pattern and you could make it even easier by making some of the details out of felt!
About 14.5 inches long (not including nose), a good size for a decorative couch pillow. 
Free pattern after the jump!

Pearl Steven Universe Cosplay Tutorial Masterpost with Crocheted Spear Pattern!

I met so many wonderful people at Colossal Con this past weekend and a lot of them requested info on my Pearl cosplay so here you go! I did a write up of the crochet pattern for the staff/spear, how I styled/added the point to the wig, and how to make the outfit with little to no sewing. Don't let yourself be intimidated by the wig modification/styling, it's not as bad as it seems! If you want to make a Pearl cosplay on a budget this is the post for you! Bird mom's got your back! <3

Big thanks to Rynn of All Trades Designs for making me look awesome! Check out her Colossal Con album here!

Super long post after the cut!

Over the Garden Wall Crochet Frog and Teapot Hat Pattern

Paging Dr. Cucumber! This will be my Over the Garden Wall crochet pattern masterpost thingy! (If you haven't seen it yet drop everything and go watch it!) The frog pattern was made by one of the production assistants for OTGW and it is absolutely a thing of beauty! I used Little Black Marker's alterations for the hands and feet and also supersized the whole pattern so now the frog is crazy super big! It is truly a statement frog! Everyone will be jealous of you!
The teapot hat is a pattern I made up myself and wrote down on the off chance anyone else needs it. I know traditionally you would make the teapot out of paper mache but personally I would break something like that on the first opportunity. A crocheted teapot also means it can be smashed down flat for travel or storage and it is super light and easy to attach to your head w/bobby pins! 

More info and patterns for the frog, teapot hat, and cosplay outfit after the break!
