Creative Juices a flowing... Friday the 13th Style

I have been sick these past few days.  The icky cold type symptoms with lots of Kleenex, nose blowing, cough, you name it.  So, I needed something to do.  What better than to teach myself to crochet.  I have been in love with the Amigurumi crochet style for quite some time and I just had to figure it out.  Plus, my mother-in-law got me this awesome book to inspire me.

Being the sick twisted horror movie buff I am, this book was all it took.  I had to make a zombie with blood coming out of his mouth.  I have to make a vampire queen, the grim reaper and the devil.  Why?  I say why not!

This guy is called corporate zombie.  Look at his little tie.  Isn't he just perfect?!?  Here are a few shots horror movie style.

Must have brains....
How intimidating!  A 3" high zombie.  He will make a nice addition to my desk at work.  Maybe I will gain some street cred with the kiddos at work!
Before I attempted the zombie I had to do a practice creature.  A friend of mine at work collects frogs.  He was really good to practice on because he used all kinds of wacky stitches.  I sure home she likes him!
This photo isn't the greatest, but I wanted to show you the whole frog as he is wedged in the crevice of the couch.  (I think my shutter is slowly dying on my camera, so all the pics lately have been very fuzzy.  It is 9+ years old)

Make sure to check back on Wednesday.  I have a Super Awesome creepy Friday the 13th giveaway/ contest for March.  


  1. I LOVE your new creatures. I wish I was that creative. And I think I would kill myself if I tried to teach myself. You are very talented.

  2. I think the fuzzy focus just adds to the creepiness of these terrifying knit characters. :-)


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
