There is a crochet story behind the Zombie Football Player Dolls. So seven years ago (more of my old is showing) I was contacted by Carrie Harris, author of, “Bad Taste and Boys.” Her book was coming out, and she needed a Zombie Football Player Doll crochet pattern so she could make a bunch of zombie football player dolls to give away when her book came out. It all sounded pretty good, and our zombie doll was born. There was a KBG interview and everything. Good times.
Yes! You can now make your own Grimeclaw Monster doll. I’m so excited for all of you. This has been a labor of love that has gone on for months. I’m really excited to see it all come together. Today I’m releasing just the crochet pattern. The original plan was to have the crochet pattern and the crochet pattern kit release on the same day… like today. Apparently that wasn’t meant to be, because I forgot about a few things that I really need to ship out the kits. They’re all ordered and will be here very soon. The crochet pattern kit gets its own little PRE-SALE, and you get to save $2 by ordering early.
This crocheted Great White Shark hat has been my baby this week. The hat has been ripped out a few times to get it just right. There has been cursing and giggling. My kids and Hubs probably think I’m a little off (I am, and they’ve known for years.), and now we have amazing headgear for next year’s Shark Week. Maybe everyone will have one by then. It’s been crocheted along with episode after episode of Shark Week, and I’m just ecstatic with the results.
We’ve hit week 3 of Hooked. I’m pretty excited about the doll that I’m sharing this week. I’ve been working on him since July, so getting him finished is something I’m very happy about. This doll gives you 2 monster friends to play with out of the 1 crochet pattern.
