Oh my gosh is this thing not just adorable!? My sister in particular is going to love this.
The pattern comes from here. Although the pattern on that page references yet another page for the skull and crossbones applique which is just sewn on with a tail of yarn. The pattern doesn’t specify the eyes and nose, so I just used my cross stitching experience to make french knots for the eyes and a small stitch for the nose.
I did have to make a slight adjustment to get my square to reach my seven inches and that was doing one more round in black before switching to the white for one row. Other than that, this pattern was pretty straightforward and simple. This is definitely one of the cutest squares from this project.
