*New* Skull and Crossbones Applique

It's Finally October, which means it's Fall and Halloween is around the corner!

So I decided to do some digging through my notebooks of scribbled down patterns as I went for custom orders.  I get many requests or this and that, and after posting said custom order to only have a new customer want the exact same thing - I learned to write the pattern down as I was creating. Little did I know at the time that I was a designer in the rough, and that I've literally been designing for over 4 years now, but just recently started to have my patterns tested and released into the crochet world. So with the holidays soon approaching, I browsed through my pass orders and patterns in notebooks.  Considering Halloween is my Favorite holiday, I was SHOCKED that I Only had a Jack Skellington hat available in my pattern shops! So that needed to change like yesterday!

So I decided to release not 1 BUT 2 Monster Hats!  I'm currently working on a "build a monster" e-book pattern - where the customer can pick and choose which features to add to their hat! I hope it turns out as awesome as I imagine it in my head!  If you'd like to see my monster hats already available, then check out this blog post about my Big Eyed Monster Hat, or check out my Scary Cute Monster Hat pattern ;-)

But THEN I remembered that I have a skull, and a skull and crossbones applique that can be add to ANYTHING!  So right then and there I knew THAT was my next pattern to release.  
It is my pleasure to introduce: Skull and Crossbones Applique
Now this pattern is a 2 for 1!  You can work the applique with OR without the crossbones :-)

Here's a few items I have made for previous orders using this applique:

A Child Size "Pirate Hat" 

complete with a multicolored mohawk, earflaps, and tassels

Baby Skull Scalloped Hat

1st skull applique I ever created,
done custom per request of customer

Newborn Biker Photo Prop

This was a fun one to create!
Believe it or not, but the Mom tat and the name are really dried hot glue that I painted on top of, then hot glued to the vest!

I sent out the pattern to testers. I LOVE how the neon green one turned out!  Didn't they do a great job?
