Using tapestry needle and black embroidery floss, embroider eyes as shown in photo. I embroidered over the 5th rnd of stitching with 3 sts between the eyes.


For bag charm make a ch approximately 15” long; 36” – 40” if you prefer to wear it around your neck.

Clip lanyard clip onto keyring.

Insert keyring into ghost, pushing lanyard clip out through the ch-4 ring at the top.

Tie an overhand knot at the top of the loop to prevent it coming out when the key is used.
