Haunted House

Ever since I started designing patterns a few months ago, I haven't really had much time to work on my own projects.  Leisure projects.  I don't really mind much, since I'm crafting a lot as a designer and getting cool decor items for my home out of it.  However, sometimes I paw through my patterns and kind of long for the days of working with other people's patterns. 

Back in June, I started a cool plastic canvas haunted house.  It's a pretty big project, so I figured I needed that long to get it done before October.  But then I got distracted with this new designing endeavor, and I set the house aside.  I figured I'd get it done sometime.

Well, October hit me in the face yesterday and reminded me that I hadn't finished the house yet!  So I picked up the needle on Friday and managed to get it all done by Saturday afternoon.  Here's my cool new house!

It was a fun pattern to make!  I didn't even add all the critters to the house; it already seemed really crowded.  The pattern had some mistakes in it, but that's not such a big deal now that I have some experience designing. 

Now I just need to find a place for this thing.  It's so big! 

What are you guys working on these days?  Are you busy making X-mas presents, or are you making cute things for your home?


  1. Love the haunted house you did. Where can I buy this pattern at?

    1. It's an old Needlecraft Shop pattern that's out of print, but you can probably find it on Ebay or Craftsy. The pattern is called Halloween Boos, Bats, and Cats. Glad you liked it!

  2. Love to have the pattern for that Haunted House.

  3. What is inside these haunted houses? Usually you will find some actors dressed up in costume and lots of theatrical make up. Haunted attraction
