I got my package from Topolino on Friday (hooray for priority mail!), but unfortunately it's taken me this long to find batteries for my camera.

Here are my lovely goodies!

A canvas bag with a stencil of Herbert West from Re-Animator, with quote.


A neat decoupage box with pictures from horror movies.


Four blank cards with skulls and dripping blood, and a really awesome visible man pendant.


I think I'm going to use the pendant as a zipper pull on my purse, and the bag is already full of stuff!  Thanks muchly!

C'mon people, aren't you going to tell Topolino how awesome her stuff is?

Since I seem to have this thread to myself, here's the stuff I sent to Topolino:

Placemats with various dermatological disorders (she listed her favorite cause of death as disease)


a slit-throat choker (crocheted)


And, what every girl needs, her very own knitted digestive system!

shoegazer:  Thanks!  I did write the pattern down as I went, but it desperately needs to be proofread, which I will do while knitting version 2.0.  The pattern will be on my website, when I eventually get a website. Undecided

I am SO pleased with what Arrmatie made for me!  The knitted digestive system is the coolest thing ever.  As I told her, I even made my friend stop at my apartment on her way home from work to see it!  I'm trying to think of a way to hang it on my kitchen wall Wink

One word of caution for Arrmatie: the pendant is made from glass microscope slides so be careful if you're going to be grabbing and pulling on it alot.

Re: the totebag I made.  This was the first time that I've ever made my own stencil and used it on fabric.  I was so relieved when it turned out ok Tongue

THANKS so much, Matie!

Don't hang it on the wall!  It's huggable, squishable (and washable).  If people want to play with it, let them!  You have no idea how hard it was for me to get it away from my friends and family so I could send it to you.  I'm starting another one as soon as I have a break from other projects.

Thanks for the warning about the pendant.  I'll have to think of somewhere else to put it.  It's sooo pretty, but just a little too heavy to wear.

And, BTW, it's ARRmatie.  Cursed be we who have google-able first names.  Cheesy

I love the digestive track.  I have a life long goal of knitting/crocheting an entire person!  And I love the slit throat neclace.  Also the cards from topolino is great, as is the box!

I'm lurking here, to see what everyone made.  I wanted to take place in this swap but didn't have the time.

I love everything!!!!  The knitted digestive system to the Hannibal bag to the microscope slide pendant to TWO slitted throat choker!

I had a hope someone would do giallo-related crafts. . . just to see what one would do.  Would it involve a strategically place J&B scotch bottle and a spiked black leather glove??   Wink

Yay!  I'm so happy you love it.  I actually had a tough time coming up with something, but knew you liked zombies and wanted a decoration for your room, so I figured I'd paint you a something freaky for you to enjoy.  I hope it gives you the creeps in the best way.   Smiley
