Finished crochet pumpkin

Betty has gone to stay with grandma for 3 nights! That’s the longest she’s been away. While the relative silence is a nice break I do miss her, as does Iris, who keeps wondering around saying her name.

I’ve crocheted this little pumpkin for her return. We don’t tend to make a big deal out of Halloween, but Betty is quite excited about it so I may go to the neighbours and ask if they mind us trick or treating them with her. Pattern for the pumpkin is linked in my previous post. I glued the face on with some basic all-purpose glue but it’s not very secure, so it may be time for me to invest in a glue gun – v exciting!

Crochet Halloween pumpkin

We’ve never been big on Halloween in our house, but Betty has become more observant and is noticing all the Halloween tat in the shops. Loath to buy her anything pointless, I thought I’d make her a little something.

I’m in the process of making this cute and very easy little pumpkin. I’m posting now before I’ve finished in case it inspires anyone to knock one up before next week. You’ll see my finished article soon. In the meantime the free pattern can be found at Planet June.
