What's cuter than crocheted candy corn?
Crocheted candy corn with faces.
To make these sweet fellows, I followed a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. You might have to give them an email address to view the pattern, but it is free, and it doesn't seem to generate too much junk mail.
It's a great beginner project, and very easy to add a face to...
...before stuffing, and sewing up.
I used felt scraps, and yarn for the faces...
...and also some buttons...
...and sew on googly eyes.
If you make one for a baby, or toddler, I'd suggest sticking with the felt, or using safety eyes, to minimize the choking hazard. Since, I don't think my 13 year old will try to chew off the buttons, I used up whatever I could find in my pre-Christmas crafting stock up time, closet.
As I said, the pattern is simple, and very good for beginners. Though it does require paying attention (and not trying to do six other things at once), as you can see from the variation in my candy corn.
It's great to be homeschooler.
