My niece looooooooves Tim Burton. Which is awesome, because she's six.  She dresses up like the Corpse Bride and can watch Nightmare over and over.

Their Tivo'd version of the movie got lost, however, so it became necessary to buy her a copy on DVD.  I thought, Why not knit her a Nightmare toy to go with it? 

Zero was the obvious choice, especially because my niece also loooooves dogs. 

Here he is:




The body is knit. He was big enough for a chihuahua sized collar.  His nose is crocheted to look like a jack-o-lantern, with a little face embroidered on (You can see it in the bottom picture).  I did some creative stitching to give his nose an upward turn.  And extra long ears.  He is best presented holding the DVD.
