Make Your Own Zombiebot Amigurumi!

zombiebot

I’m not exactly sure what a zombiebot is, but it sure is cute. Check out this free crochet pattern available on CraftFoxes.com, sourced from a super cute book (Crobots: 20 Amigurumi Robots to Make, by Nelly Pailloux).

I like this kind of pattern.  It offers up instructions for you to make the zombiebot as is, or if you’re feeling daring, you can mix things up with different colors, “injuries”, stitches, and embellishments.  Just think, you can crochet your own army of crobots as you plan world domination!

Plus, read the Geek Crafts review of Nelly Pailloux’s Crobots book!

Join the Zompocalypse by Making Your Own Zombie Plushie!

ZombiePlushie

I just spent the weekend selling my handmade goodies at TopCon, a small pop-culture convention in Topeka, KS. One of the guests, Mike Mundy, was a zombie on The Walking Dead, so there was a lot of zombies hanging around this weekend.  All those undead inspired me to share this great tutorial on making your own zombie plushie on the blog Heidi Boyd.  This tutorial offers more inspiration than actual techniques, but if you’re familiar with basic hand sewing skills, you’ll have no problem making your little Zombie Plushie friend to hunt down brains with.  You could even mix it up a bit and use different colored fleece, felt scraps, and embroidery floss.  The tutorial offers up a great, basic starting point for your imagination to take over.  Be sure to share your adventures in zombie making with us!

Free Knitted Zombie Pattern!

Isn’t he just lovely? You can thank Fiona Goble for designing this handsome fellow, and Craft Foxes for posting the pattern (with permission of course). He’s actually just one of the zombies you can knit because there’s a whole book of them! Fancy having a Zombie Cop? Perhaps a movie classic like Frankenstein’s Monster or The Mummy? Pick up a copy of Knit Your Own Zombie by Fiona Goble and you can make them all!

My favourite part? The fact that the intestines “tuck neatly into their own specially made pouch.” Awesome.
