Oct 4, 2021 | Blog, NEW Toy Patterns

Yeehar! I’ve finally had the chance to update my Bat & Ghost Halloween Sewing Pattern. When I first designed Batty & Boo, it was before I began doing step-by-step photo tutorials…. soooooooooooo long ago! I have been reworking my older patterns because people have told me that they LOVE how they can “see how my toy patterns come together” with my photo tutorials!


I’m excited to say ~> 
these sweet Halloween Funky Friends
ready to go out into the big wide world AGAIN!

What fabrics can you use for a sewing Halloween Toys?

Batty and Boo can be sewn in most fabrics. They will work well in both non-stretch fabrics (like quilting fabrics) as well as stretchy/knit fabrics (like fleece). They will also look good in all sorts of colours and textures…
