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 Hats
I had made a Jack hat awhile back but wanted a different design for this hat.
Instead of a crochet applique of Jack on the hat, I wanted this hat to be of Jack's face, but more of a wicked smirk on his face rather than his nice guy type smile.
For the Nightmare Sally hat, I went wild and paid attention to details. I wanted her eyes to be almond shaped and large and I wanted her darker grey eye shadow to really "pop" with those rag doll eyelashes. I also wanted her blood red lips to be smaller so that I could make her mouth stitches longer. I didn't want to forget her extra stitches underneath her eye and across her forehead from a previous tear from something we can only imagine. For her hair I used a blood red color and did a texture style stitch to resemble actual hair. I made the bottom of her pigtails into ear flaps and then braided the ends.
