look back: halloween patterns from dad

Occasionally, I like to look back at posts from the past. Here's something I shared back in 2010!

Halloween Patterns From Dad

My dad is so very talented in so many ways. He is a huge inspiration to me, and he (without knowing it) intimidates me a little too. Because you can ask him to create something, and with seemingly very little effort, creates good things.

Like when I asked him to draw some designs for embroidering so that I could share them...

He very cleverly made these Halloween patterns for you! You'll notice these are all by hand (I could have outlined them, but I didn't want to take anything away from his style), so you can either choose one line to follow, or stitch the double lines, fill them, you can choose!

Just click on the image to get the full size file at Flickr. And please, only use for your personal projects...Thanks!

Happy Halloween Stitching!


  1. Thanks Dad! Those are awesome. I see talent runs in the family!

    I love stitching for Halloween!

  2. Love the bat! :)

  3. Awww... my grandpa used to draw funny little cartoons like that too, but I've never thought about embroidering them. Brilliant! Thanks for the flash of inspiration!

  4. I adore these! I have been too busy to make a Halloween decoration this year, but I may have to do a quick weekend project. :)
