You should make lots more of them and create your own Zombie and Ninja army!

That's not a bad idea.  I want to do a whole set of characters, either from a movie or a tv show...but I have so many ideas, I haven't picked which one to do first.   Wink

Eeee!  Bunny!  So cute.  I think the lopsidedness makes him extra cute.   Cheesy

I love your monster!  He's so cute, and that's a great tutorial.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone.  These were actually not difficult to make, only time consuming, because they're so small.  Both figures are around 3.5 inches, so things like the hands (which are about .75 inches across) look like something other than blobs took some practice.  The zombie was the first one I made and went through 3 sets of hands before I was satisfied.  All in all, I would say he took about 6 hours of crafting time.  The ninja was much easier, 'cause he was all black, and only took about 2.

If you can ever find a copy of the book for a reasonable price, I would highly recommend it.

I have a bunch more ideas for dolls in my head, as soon as I have some free time.

excellent job on both! what did you use around the zombie eyes to make it greyish?


I dabbed black eyeshadow directly onto the felt to make the eye smudges.  It's one of the effects I am proudest of (along with the bloodshot eye, which I love).

I borrowed the book Lovable Mini-Dolls from a co-worker, and used one of the people patterns to make my own twisted versions of the dolls.  Of course, the first thing that came to my mind was that I had to make a zombie:



This was followed closely by the idea that I also needed to make a ninja:



Both felt dolls stand about 3.5 inches high.
