Arrival of a New Zombie

For this swap you were supposed to ask for a zombie you've wanted to add to your collection. I gave my partner a few ideas to choose from. Tiffany went with my zombie woodland creature idea and created the cutest little zombie bunny complete with his own woodland scene. I’ve made lots of zombies but I never thought about creating a matching scene, it’s a brilliant idea!  Tiffany crocheted both the doll and the red and white mushroom background(did I mention that I love red and white mushrooms.) I also love the little bunny leg bone that's sticking out. Both the zombunny and the mushroom are awesome additions to my zombie doll collection. Thank you Tiffany!

Tiffany also included Minecraft mini-figures and Mike and Ike Zombie candy. My daughter claimed the mini-figures and my husband got the candy. I get to keep the mushroom and the zombunny so everybody wins! 

Tiffany wanted a My Little Pony Queen Chrysalis zombie so I used Abby Glassenberg’s unicorn puzzle ball pattern but zombified it a bit. I really enjoyed creating this doll and had so much fun collecting tuck-ins to include. I didn’t take pictures of the whole package but I did take a few of the doll.

Thank you for a great Swap Tiffany. And thank you Val for hosting, this is one of my favorite swaps! My other favorite is the ornament swap so I can’t wait for that one. Thanks for being the best swap hostess!

Here's lookin at ya!

I am DONE!!!!

I got carried away with my zombie doll.....I can't share it now because it is too distinct and my partner will know which theme I went with. (She gave me several choices...) 

I always do a poem or biography or something with my dolls....

Here is a snippet of what this doll's poem is:

"Gone is her heart and her lovely brown mane,
Instead she is left with a longing for BRAINS!"

a little taste

So who is ready for zombie movies????  MEEEEE!

Zombies - Getting Started

I finally have a plan for creating my zombie doll.  I bought some fabric, I have a pattern and I'm ready to get to work.  That's right, I'm actually planning to use a pattern, I rarely do that! I typically create my own patterns as I go. I think it's because when it comes to crafting I like to make my own rules. Or maybe I just don't like to follow patterns, not sure. Either way, wish me luck! 
I'm getting ready to start cutting into my fabric,  but I'm wondering what everyone else is working on. Do tell . . .
