Halloween Cuties

I think I have said this before, but I love Dolls & Daydreams softie patterns!

 When Sarah released her new Skeleton Softie

I just knew I had to make them!  I showed them to my mom who immediately asked if I could make the pair to decorate her door this Halloween season.  

Off to work I went creating some cuties for her.
 Here is what I cam up with.

The only real changes I had to make was not stuffing them very firmly so they would fit between the doors.  
I also had to add a strap the the witches broom so she could sling it over her shoulder.

By the time I finished up the pair my mom was in the hospital recovering from a double knee replacement.  Before hanging them on the door, I decided to take them to visit her.  She loved them (as did the nurses)!

Here they are taking a break in her bed while we headed off to physical therapy with my mom.

Now, as soon as Ran laid eyes on the skeleton he just insisted that I make one for him.
For his, I made the bones using an ivory wool blend felt.  I let him draw the mouth he wanted and then I embroidered it on.  He was so excited to see what he had envisioned and drawn made into reality.
