Free Pattern: Customizable Skull Applique (Updated April 15, 2013)

This is a great little applique to use if you're making Super Mario Mushrooms - it's perfect for the top of the purple mushroom! It's really versatile, so it's really easy to customize it to your liking!I paired mine with Linda Potts/Wolfdreamer's Mario Brother Mushrooms Pattern
This pattern was revised and updated.

Here's a few ways to customize:
In Row 2, add a picot between the DC's to make pointed teeth.
Add extra rows between Row 3 & 4.
In row 4, instead of DC (bolded text), SC or slst for slightly sinister-looking eyes.
Add extra rows after Row 5.

The possibilities are endless! Have fun!
