Creepy Eyeball Pillow Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Creepy Eyeball Pillow 
Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs


I got the idea to make Creepy Eyeball Pillows from my
 neighbor.  Last year they made 2 creepy eyeballs out 
of 2 painted Frisbees and put them up in a pine tree. 
It was like the tree was watching the neighborhood. 
I Loved it.



So I decided to design some pillows that looked like
 those creepy eyes. 
They are so fun to make and decorate for Halloween.
They stitch up super fast, and are also easy to stitch up.
There are not any fancy stitches or techniques. 
Just fun!



Creepy Eyeballs!

Make a bunch and "Watch" Your
 neighbors on Halloween.
LOL!
Or just for some fun and silly decorations.
 They are great for both outside and inside Halloween Decorations.

Breast Cancer Awareness Headband And Slouchy Beanie Hat Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

 Breast Cancer Awareness Headband And Slouchy Beanie Hat
Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Every year I try to design a New Crochet Pattern
 to bring awareness to Breast Cancer.
I designed This Crochet Pattern in October 2015.
 I decided it was time to retest the crochet pattern, 
 and record a brand new video



I designed the hat in a soft cotton.
 Be sure to use a soft yarn like cotton, or acrylic,
if you are making this for a Chemo patient.
This crochet pattern is a step by step Photo Tutorial
 to help you with the Cable Stitch section of the hat band.
I set the skill at "intermediate" because the cable sections
 can be a little tricky, but it is easy once you practice the 
cable stitch pattern a couple of times.


Other yarns that will work for this pattern
are I Love This Cotton, I Love This yarn and simply soft
And Redheart soft. Any medium (4) weight yarn will
 work for this project.

This Crochet Pattern can also be a headband 
By leaving off the top part of the Slouchy.


I designed this pattern using pink and white for
 Breast Cancer Awareness. It also works for any of the
 other ribbon colors, by changing the colors that
 you make it in.
