Look: simple little skeleton plushies. Inspired by their kinder, gentler, more edible cousin--the gingerbread man. They are a family of skellies, really. You can see that: papa skelly, mama skelly and baby skelly. Because even skeletons need love.
It's just a nice little embroidered something you can make for someone who might have a thing for skeletons (ahem, Beeper). They also function nicely as Halloween decor in between being played with.
Just know this: most of your time spent making these will be spent embroidering them. I happen to love that because it means I can get in my jammies, sit on the sofa, feet up, Mad Men on, and embroider away (in between sips of wine and periodic bouts of cussing when I draw blood because I've pricked my finger again-- damn you, Don Draper, and how you distract me!).
