BOO-tiful upgrade!

October!  Yay!  Wait, how in the world is it already October?!  I'm trying to renew my enthusiasm since I had a head start celebrating a couple months ago preparing projects and stocking shelves in our brick and mortar, Nest Interiors.

So, I decided, to get in the spirit, I would dress up one my existing Boo Y'all Chicken Scratch Bat Pattern with a crochet edge embroidery hoop tutorial featured over at Heartmade Life.  It's a great, very descriptive tutorial and I love combining a couple of my hobbies in one beautiful project.

More good news!  If you want to stitch your own bat, I've reduced the price on the pattern.  The embroidered hoop only shows part of the pattern - you'll actually receive the pattern and info on the full pattern seen here:

If you do wish to stick to just the hoop - I opted for an 8" wooden embroidery hoop and it fit the pattern perfectly using the noted gingham fabric listed in the pattern.  For the crochet edge - one skein of a medium worsted weight cotton works perfect - I used this.
