I originally designed this spider as a best friend for Nellie the Pig. She was made of light grey felt with a friendly smiling face - not scary at all. This is the perfect little spider to send up the water spout when you're singing The Itsy Bitsy Spider with a group of preschoolers. 🙂 I named her Aranea after one of Charlotte's daughters who decided to stay behind with Wilbur. However - I decided that a spider pattern just wouldn't be right without a slightly spookier version. I wanted to show you another version that would be perfect for Halloween decorations - something you could scatter around a table. 🙂 This version skips the embroidered face and uses Licorice felt for a slightly-hairy-looking, almost-black spider. This is definitely NOT the spider to use with your preschool class. It's surprisingly realistic looking! Jo suggested adding a hair clip to the bottom of the body for a spooky barrette. 🙂
