I hope you're all stocking up on treats, because I'm sending out a host of Collectors. I just hope nobody nasty is inside this castle, as my buddies are having fun through the forest, the more acrobatic ones swinging from branch to branch:
I like making Stuffies, and these are so simple: a fine-wove fabric (and I put my foot through an Egyptian cotton sheet just after making these, so guess where it's headed). Run some dyna-flo washes through it, stamp your buddy with Stazon or Indian ink, and start colouring them in. Put another layer of fabric behind them, stitch around the outside leaving an opening for stuffing, Stuff them then stitch them up completely.

Meet Rasta - his dreads are still developing, but his hair has a truly a scrofulous texture: one of those horrible "gritty" fake fur fabrics!
Curly's hair is made by knitting a corkscrew (and they said it could only be done in crochet! Cast on heaps of stitches and knit 1 row. Row 2: K3tog across the row. Next row, k3tog across the row. Cast off remaining stitches. I did it on a knitting machine - still faster than by hand! If you prefer a crochet hook, chain a length. Turn, miss 1 st, 3dc into every chain across the length. Chain 1, turn, 3dc in every stitch. Any Americans reading this, you call a dc a sc!
AND your own creep makes can be shared back on 1 October post,
