So Halloween is basically here, so I figure, it’s time for a new, Halloween themed pattern.
I was searching online for a pattern for an easy bat, but I really couldn’t find any, so I figured, why not make one? So I did, and I think it turned out really nicely. You might recognize this bat sewn onto the girls Halloween hat (left) available here.
These pins are available to buy here.
So here are some photos of what you can make!

Sew on some eyes and a mouth and tweak the wings a bit, and you have a cute little bat!
You can also sew on a pin or some bobby pins to attach it to some clothes or put in your hair.
And that’s all, simple, quick, and you’re ready to go out and show some Halloween spirit!
