Halloween's a comin"

I have finished up my swaps and such, I know I can work on some Halloween crafts for myself. First off is this adorable little Day of the dead bat ornament.. I made the mouse on the left for a swap partner and I loved it so much that I decided to make myself a bat… On the right. no pattern I just came up with them on my own.
I also made these cute little adoptable ghosts. Though they were very simple to make, they were a big hit with my swap partners.
I created this granny square with a skull in the center, because I wanted to make a Halloween Afghan. My own pattern… Here is my finished afghan I love it!
I also created these skull granny square earrings. I actually created normal sized granny squares first and made my Afghan, but then I used thread to create the earrings. The earrings are approximately 1/9 of a square size.
I am working on a couple of other things and I will post more pictures when I get them finished.

Zed the Zombie!

Trying to get a jump on my Halloween crafting. I got the pattern for this sweet little guy off of Ravelry. He is about 17 inches tall, which is larger than he was supposed to be, but that's fine. More of the little guy to love. He might also be going to the Fair next year.
