Free Halloween Printable: Eat, Drink, and Be Scary.

 I made this printable 3 years ago and it is still one of my favorite things to pull out during the Halloween season. I popped it in a cheap frame and voila! Instant decor. Pairing it with the figurine gifted to me by the fabulous Sazzy makes this little corner extra special.

This little guy was super easy to do. Next up Yoda!

The kit I got contains instructions for a bunch of characters and all the things you need to make a storm trooper and Yoda.

I got mine at Michael’s but you can order it from Amazon.

I like how the feet were designed: bobble stiches (new to me) at the bottom for stability and a little dimension. The “belt” is also a series of bobble stiches. The book has very clear instructions and photos that were essential for a newbie crocheter like me.

I want to do the rest of the characters and am on the lookout for some solid wool (you’d think I’d have some in my stash, but I don’t). Any suggestions on what kind and where to grab some?
