I've always preferred Hallowe'en to Christmas - in my book, nothing beats kicking through piles of autumn leaves, seeing people in fancy dress wandering the streets and finding imaginative ways to cook pumpkins. In keeping with the ghoulishness of the season, my first Hallowe'en themed beastie has a hand-stitched felt skull tucked under his arm.
Then there were four... I bought some yarn (any excuse...) and made some more beasties!
This is my beastie prototype. He was meant to be a pair of fingerless gloves, but fortunately I ran out of wool and made him instead. He's a little rough around the edges and is stuffed with old socks, but I wouldn't have him any other way.
