I made these sock skeletons for my niece and nephews in Virginia for Halloween. The pattern is available on Martha Stewart’s website herehttp://images.marthastewart.com/images/content/web/pdfs/2009Q4/tvs_1009_skeletontemplate.pdf I’m all thumbs with a sewing machine so I stitched each one by hand. The first two dolls took me almost two hours each to create! But once I got the swing of it the third doll went much quicker. After testing each doll by vigorously yanking on each arm and button eye (two of the kids are under the age of 5) I wrapped each one in Halloween scrapbook paper and sent them off last Friday. Happy Haunting Sam, Addie and Eli!
My friend Windy wanted some spooky silhouettes for the second story window in her new house and Martha came to the rescue again. I used my handy dandy tracing projector to enlarge these claws to 3 feet high a piece. Then I painted the white poster board with black acrylic paint. Martha suggested painting them on fabric but since I had poster board on hand I used that instead. The project will not be as durable for year after year displaying and packing but it was cheap and easy!
