I somehow stumbled upon this book called "Creepy Cute Crochet: Zombies, Ninjas, Robots and More!" by Christen Haden and I am so glad I did.  I loved it.

Here are some of the things I have made from it:

Ninja:


Nosferatu:


Medusa:


Alien:


Death:


Queen Vampire:


I changed the Queen's hair because in the book, she looked crazy.  I think this hairstyle makes her look more like a Queen.

I am happy with them.  Grin

These are so awesome. What did you use for the eyes? Is it polymer clay ( I hope this is the right word, in Germany we say "Fimo")?

Thank you both for the kind words! 

I did use polymer clay for the eyes.  Just plain Sculpey.

And how did you fix the eyes on the body? With glue or did you model an eyelet to sew them on? They look so cute. I think I will try polymer clay for making my own amigurumi-eyes.

I just glued the eyes on with a really strong fabric glue.

Thank you very much!  And about not being able to post a picture, have you made 10 posts yet?  I had problems with posting pictures on the forums too until I realized I needed to post 10 times.  I uploaded a bunch of pictures, I guess they count as posts too, and I then was able to post pictures.

Oh my gosh!  Those turned out great!  I had difficulites with the patterns in that book.  Theres actually a thread in the crochet discuissions because so many others including myself had similar difficulites with the patterns.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I had problems with the patterns too but I just went with it and made it up as I went.  There are still problems with them and they don't look like the pictures in the book exactly, but I am pleased anyway.

Thank you!
