About me

Hello!! My name is Morine and I’m the designer and maker behind Morine’s Shop. I’m Kenyan, born and raised. I learnt to crochet from my mother when I was around 8 years old. I didn’t do much but dishtowels until years later, I completed my first big project, a granny square blanket and I was hooked from then on. I picked up on amigurumi a few years ago after being encouraged by a friend to try it out and I love every minute of it since. I now mainly focus on baby and home d├ęcor designs and makes.

Skully Corn Bag- Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern

FREE HALLOWEEN PATTERNS – THE SKULLY CORN BAG
Are you looking for free Halloween patterns? You’re in the right place, here you’ll find many fun Halloween patterns for free including Halloween amigurumi patterns! One of these free Halloween patterns is my Skully Corn Bag – a Tunisian crochet colorwork pattern for a fun trick or treat bag for little ones! When I initially designed this bag, I just had candy corn with a face in mind. It turned into so much more! He is mister skully corn and has a goofy personality! I’ve also added some fringe at the top to give the effect of spider webs. I hadn’t intended for his head to be in the shape of a skull but I love that it turned out that way so I went with it! I hope you love making him as much as I did!
