Anyway, I had been planning on making this little guy for a while now.. and what better time than October!  It took a while for me to decide on how I wanted him to look, since I wanted to do a cute version (similar to how I made Jack and Zero).  I tried to incorporate as much detail as I could to keep him looking accurate with the wonky proportions ^^; The trickiest part was getting folds on the different surfaces of his body.  Details are needle felted, including the colorful openings on the sides of his body.

Wishing you all a candy-filled October! :dance:

Aphid, I have nowhere near your talent, but have decided to attempt your nightmare series!  My kids all just squeed when they saw these :)  My question is can you explain what you mean by sewing in the folds?  I feel daft, like this should be so easy to understand, but I am just not getting it
Thank you!

I'm sorry, I wish I had a pattern to share :(  A lot of the shaping for this one was done by sewing in the folds, so there was no way I could write a proper pattern.  Sorry about that!

I made folds and sewed them in place before stuffing.. if that makes any sense ^^;
