Last year I was searching on ebay and came across a pamphlet that had a crocheted haunted house. Of course, I didn't win :no. Now I can't seem to find it anywhere. I believe it was from Annie's Attic...but it could have been from Leisure Arts. It was a 3D haunted house. I have seen the flat ones, the potholders, etc. It also wasn't plastic canvas. I'm sure I could make one up, but I like the ease of having it all right there in front of me. That way I can pick it up and put it down whenever I feel like it.

and...if there happens to be one out there for a gingerbread house too...that would be GREAT!!!

found the gingerbread house.... http://www.anniesatt...l?prod_id=21461

If you find the pattern, I'd be interested in it too.

This might be one for designers... The only one I remember is a thread one that Annies Attic had.

I think this is a flat one http://pacycrochets.tripod.com/HauntedH/index.htm

looking for patterns - link to someone looking for houses, castles, etc., and has some ideas you may be able to use if you want to design one.


Hmm.. I wonder how you would stiffin them. The one from Annies Attic says it uses Worsted Weight yarn... Couldn't be too hard to duplicate... but I wonder if plastic canvas or a cardboard is used to stiffin it... maybe fabric stiffiner? hmm:think

thanks...

I think plastic canvas would be good to hold it's shape. A thread one would be fine if it was 3D. I would just go ahead and use worsted weight instead.

I might just have to go ahead and design one...not until AFTER the holidays though...too busy right now.

I could always go ahead and get the gingerbread pattern and change the colors and items around it to fit in the Halloween theme....sounds like a good idea actually!

Freepatterns.com has a plastic canvas gingerbread house "Gingerbread House Card Holder" which could work as an inside to a crochet house... just crochet to match the shape of the plastic canvas... maybe...

Bummer. Last year freepatterns.com had a crochet gingerbread house tissue box cover, but it's been removed, and I don't see it on e-patterncentral either. Anyway, if you don't wan't to use plastic canvas for stiffening that's an idea...
