Phenomenal Phantoms Softie by Sew Pandi

Hello to GYCT readers, Amanda from Sew Pandi here with a soft and spooky Halloween treat.
Portrait final

When Chelsea of invited me to participate in 31 days of Halloween by doing a themed project, I knew I wanted to do a free plush pattern, so I started thinking of things that I could plushify that were associated with Halloween: Bats, Pumpkins, Black Cats. I came up with several ideas, but they all quickly became more complicated projects than I was wanting to do at this time. Finally an idea settled in my brain as I went to bed, and that was how this pattern came to be.

Philmore, Philip, and Philomena used to perform with the Philomont Philharmonic, but after some life changing events ;) they became the Phenomenal Phantoms, playing the latest in eerie music. These delightful little ghosts stand 5” tall and make an adorable decoration for your festivities. They are fun and cuddly, so don’t be afraid if you find them tucked into your little one’s bed at night.
