Everyone has their favorite Disneyland Ride. Be it Space Mountain, Peter Pan, Pirates of the Carribean, etc. Mine? I’ve always been a Haunted Mansion girl myself. Now, I’m not obsessed at the level that I could be. I know about the story line, I make time in my schedule to see the Nightmare Before Christmas overlay, and can quote the narrarator on both occasions. Okay, so maybe I’m a bit obsessed but whatever. What about you?

I made a version of this pillow for a dear friend as a housewarming gift. You see, she had just bought her first house (and if you live in LA, you know what a feat that truly is) and she was doing her living room in a Haunted Mansion, black and purple, theme. Originally I created the pillow using tunisian crochet but decided to just go with regular crochet for the tutorial. why? Well, it ends up doing the same and I wasn’t really sure how to write a tutorial on how to tunisian crochet so… there you have it.

To Cross Stitch:
1. Thread a length of yarn through the needle and find the center of the front panel. To do this, count 30 over on the width and stitch a few large stitches. Then do the same for the height.

2. Begin to cross stitch the following design. This works a lot like counted cross stitch so count over how many stitches you need from your center stitches.  You can also measure off the beginning of the line using the same method.
