music box toy • spider AGATHA

music box toy . Agatha

Halloween is already over … again. But not for us and not yet! Because we lost your bloody mosquito dressed housefly buddy Buzz!

So we quickly organized a search through the darkest corners of the house. Doing so, we found many lost socks, old sweets and rusty crochet hooks and unfortunately we also managed to get caught up in an artfully crafted giant spider net!

In the center of this amazing piece of crochet there was a purple spider and right behind her back we glimpsed Buzz ... comfortably rocking on a thread with a cup of tea on his knees and chewing biscuits! Well, I admit, creatures with an above-average number of hands (or legs) gave me the creeps, but this spider is just adorable!

And while the music box inside her belly sings the prologue theme of the Harry Potter movies, Agatha slowly pulls up on her own music box cord to get us some cookies and a cup of tea. It seems as if we were caught in someone’s meshes!

Agatha is the first toy from my new series of lalylala music box toys 🕷

smart ideas

Mobile
Crochet 5 or more little spiders to build a creepy cute spider mobile. If you use fingering weight yarn (size 1 - super fine) on a 2,25 mm crochet hook the spider’s body turns out a height of 9 cm (3,5 inch).

Baby rattle
If you use a sport weight cotton yarn (size 2 - fine) you can turn your spider into a spooky baby rattle. Insert a noise maker into the spider’s body. If you don’t have one of those flat rattle inserts, you can also use the yellow plastic egg from Kinder Surprise Eggs to do the trick! Fill some rice, rough sand or beads into the egg to make it sound when you shake it.

Halloween decoration
Agatha is a spooktacular detail for your next
Halloween decoration or costume!

My spider plays the "prologue theme" from the Harry Potter movies ... what song will your Agatha sing?


OH NO! Something went wrong in the pattern! Please use those new magic formulas to defeat the evil typo gremlins. Of course all the lalylala patterns will be corrected and updated as soon as one of those aweful little guys shows up!
