Crafty Bats!

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a middle school student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted the wild colony for years.

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a nice week and are enjoying the last few weeks of summer vacation. I know you all are going to think it’s too soon to start thinking about Halloween, but if you want to be crafty, you have to start thinking about it now. Halloween is only a couple months away and that means it’s time to start making bat decorations. Personally, I was thinking of decorating the entire house in a lovely bat theme. What I’d really like is a wreath on the door with a bunch of bats hanging in it. I’ve seen a lot of ghosty and pumpkiny wreaths, but no bats ones! So, it’s time to start making some bats. Then, I’ll have to put together a wreath. This is what I’ve found so far…

I found this really cute crochet pattern online. It’s a free pattern and I think the bat is adorable. There are pictures of it in different colors to help you come up with ideas. I think it would be perfect hanging on a wreath on my front door. And maybe a few of them should be in my window. And maybe a few more around the house. The only problem is that I don’t know how to crochet. It’s quite a dilemma I’ve found myself in. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to successfully become an expert crocheter in time to make these. Maybe I should try something a little less ambitious, but I’d love to learn how to make this.
