NEW PATTERN - Creepy Crawly Crochet Appliques

In the spirit of the season, I bring to you a suite of buggy delights in the form of crocheted appliques!

How about a handful of Red Worms...



Cock-A-Roaches...



Black Widows...



And of course Maggots in 3D!



Gross, huh?

You've got admit, they're a little cool though too...

Best part is that these crocheted, squashed examples of bug-dom are great stash busters! Yep, best use of my leftover sock yarn yet (if I do say so myself)!

Pattern for all four squiggly wonders is available on my sidebar for the low, LOW price of $7!

You know you want to make piles of bug carnage...

This reminds me of Dean Koontz novel called Life Expectancy. In it the Grandmother embroders spiders and bugs onto cushions. I think that you two would get along just fine. :)

Hi there! Love your work. I'm working on a project that includes a lot of appliques and I can't find all the shapes I need. Would you be willing to collaborate for a fee to make me patterns? I especially need the planet Saturn, a porpoise, and the numbers 4 and 2. Please respond by email.
