I made this using a pattern, generously posted on Shara Lambeth Designs!
I added sugar skull toggles at the request of my daughter, Hazel, who is 16. I have been crocheting these skulls lately to make ear rings so they are lying about the place in pairs. Next I'm trying the collar with pink love heart toggles, as requested by Pepper who is 4 years old and loves anything pink or sweet. Micmac, who is 18 years old, has requested a collar with cat head toggles (!) and Wanda, also 4, wants toggles crocheted to look like Jessie from Toy Story. When she saw my eyebrows rise up at that request, she looked at me and said, "Come on! It will be easy."
It took several tries to get the sugar skull pattern right. Will post the pattern and a bit of a photo tutorial later...but for now - the sun is shining!!!We're off to the creek for a picnic!
