If you’ve been to a McDonald’s recently, you’ve seen that those awesome Halloween buckets from the days of old (aka my childhood) are back in Happy Meals! They are just so retro and cute!
So you knew I had to make patterns for them!
I designed each pattern to fit perfectly in a four-inch hoop. But if you want to put it in a rectangle or any other shape, have fun!
A little note: if you don’t have aida cloth in the background color (particularly the green or the orange one, I think most people have a small piece of white aida kicking around) know you’re going to have to stitch the background. And it’s…a lot. I only did half-stitches for the background and I was questioning my life choices after the 1,000th hour of stitching, LOL.
You can try to paint your fabric which was suggested to me by a wonderful person on Twitter, but I didn’t have paint and had already started stitching, but you may want to look into that as an alternative to having to stitch up the background.
If you don’t have to stitch the backgrounds, then you’ll be able to crank these out fairly quickly!
Onto the charts!
If you do decide to make these, let me know! I’d love to see your work! You can tag me on Twitter or Instagram (@craftinggeek). If you like this post, don’t forget to share it with people that you think would like this and remember to toss a coin to your stitcher every now and again, LOL
