rd 24: sc dec around (5 sc)

fasten off.

Finishing:

Her body is made from the bottom up, stuff body near round 12, when you get to round 18 or 19, stuff neck and then stuff head before finishing off.  Because the neck is pretty thin, i had to take tiny amounts of stuffing and kinda wrap it around the end of a smaller size crochet hook and squeeze it in there. 

Glue on eyeballs, cut out any type of mouth/teeth and glue it on (i cut out a ‘half moon’ shape in white, and then cut out pumpkin looking teeth in orange), take one pipe cleaner and weave it through a couple sc’s in the back of the head, curl up the ends for her hair.  I broke off the handles on two plastic forks, put a bunch of glue in the ‘spoon’ area (in front of the tines) and squished them on the bottom of the body.  I ended up having to hold the forks in place for a couple minutes so the glue could set a little bit, and since my finger were sticky the forks shifted a bit when i put her down, so she is a little wobbly!

Have fun!!

ps. I did not write the pattern while i was making her, so it’s a super close approximation of her.  Enjoy!
