This is quite cute, and I appreciate the effort that went into it. However, I wanted to let you know that spiders legs are attached to the front portion of their bodies- what you would consider the head. The back, bigger round section of a spider is her abdomen. Attaching the legs there would be kind of like if people had arms sticking out of our bellies. I know that lots and lots of Halloween decorations have spiders the way you made yours, and I know many people would never notice or care. But I am a spider ecologist, I do spider education in classrooms, and I feel it is important to teach kids real science, not just cartoon versions of things. It would probably be quite simple to change this project to be more anatomically correct. If you just instead attach the legs to that front portion (with the face) then you're all set. I know I seem like a stickler, but I figure that once people know how something should be, it is not too hard to do it correctly.

Just a heads up... there is someone on Etsy selling this same pattern for $10 http://www.etsy.com/listing/79902555/halloween-spider-on-spider-web-crochet I dont believe she is the person this pattern is accredited to, and she has been doing the same to a number of other individuals.
