So I decided to learn to crochet after jenicat made me awesome things for the IYP swap. And this was the first thing I made! The pattern is from the Creepy Cute Crochet book, I modified it VERY slightly (made the eyelets into bulletholes because they didn't seem to serve a purpose in the original pattern...). I made it thinking about sending it to a swap partner when the FH saw it and fell in love with it (he said "wow, that swap partner is pretty lucky!") So of course I had to give it to him (Don't worry, swap partner is getting other goodies instead Wink)

So without further ado... Zombie!



In my hand (he's little):

and somewhat more close up, (and somewhat more blurry) but you can see some of the detail near the bullet holes - I tried to add "blood splatter" (I was watching Forensic Files shortly before making this Cheesy)



I put those big glass aquarium stones in the bottom 1/3 of his body to stabilize him because his head is supposed to sit forward (he IS a zombie, after all) but this makes him unstable. The glass stones were what I had around the house rather than going out to buy poly pellets, but they actually worked REALLY well.

Let me know what you think! Cheesy
