Do you recognize this motif?
Perhaps this will help jog your memory:
Yes, De’Anna took the motif from a tacky, seventies-era Halloween Pillow and constructed a gorgeously goth afghan for her son.
I’ll bet he was a lot happier with his handmade Christmas present than poor little Mikey!
For another pic of De’Anna’s awesome afghan:
After all, what boy wouldn’t love sleeping under a pile of festively bloody skulls?
Case in point, when I showed this picture to my twelve year old son, he said, “Oh, cool! It’s like dice!”
“Dice?” I asked.
“Yeah, see? Skull, skull, skull, skull... I bet if you folded that blanket up right, you could make a cube!”
Okay, De’Anna may find her son gambling with this afghan, instead of sleeping under it. But either way, this present won Jack Skellington’s Coolest Christmas Gift Evah award!
Congratulations, De’Anna! While there’s no actual prize attached to the above award, don’t let that stop you from leaving your acceptance speech below.
Just don’t forget to thank your Mother.
