Halloween has been all the buzz in our home lately. The girls still haven't quite decided what they want to be yet. Powerpuff Girls, fairies, angels, or witches...decisions...decisions.. One of our favorite movies to watch this time of year is Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. We just love silly old Jack and his beloved Sally whom he just never listens to. These two characters inspired me to crochet my new hat designs. Introducing: Nightmare Sally and Pumpkin King Jack HatsHERE.
Don't want to wait for your chance to win and want to purchase them now? You can find Nightmare Sally Hat in my Etsy store HERE, and Pumpkin King Jack Hat HERE.
