Unique Halloween Invitation - Crochet Vampire Bat
Try this very unique Halloween invitation idea. It is more the system used to deliver it than the invitation itself that is the key to making it an original and a must have this Halloween. A hand crocheted Vampire bat with a scroll in it's clutches designed by Renske... very cool indeed.
These little bats were hand made using a combination of crochet and sewing so you may have to brush up on your crochet skills. the bats body is crocheted with wool and black felt to form the wings which are sewn on. The finished bats are approx 2x5.9 in in size.
