Next Pattern A Small Jointed Bear

Hi everyone!

POST EDIT: shortly after writing this post I was in admitted to the hospital for 8 days. I'm home now with a slow recovery ahead of me. Thanks for your patience, I'll be working on this pattern as soon as I feel up to it.
Love to all!!

What a gorgeous, sunny day here in my part of Canada. My windows and doors are open, finally. I feel creative today, I love this feeling!
Today is a good day to preview my next pattern, Berry the Bear. I made him just after releasing my small pouch patterns at the beginning of April. I released a Carrot and a Strawberry. The carrot has a tiny bunny that fits inside. All free.

This little guy fits inside the strawberry! I might tweak his feet and his eyes just a

Tiny Zombie Bunny With Rotting Carrot Pouch

Hi everyone,

Today I'm bringing you something a little different for me, a zombie bunny!
You'll need the non-zombified version of the bunny  here I'll give you some ideas for zombie parts here on this page.
These are  ideas with instructions on how to make them. Feel free to use them all or play around with your own. There's no wrong way to zombify something, so have fun!

If you have trouble working with thread, no worries! You can follow the same pattern using yarn of your choice. The green bunny pictured below was made with Red Heart Comfort yarn and a size 4mm hook.

You'll find in the pattern below:

  • dangly eye
  • dangly heart
  • leg with bone
  • short arm
  • guts
  • wounds and blood splatters
  • exposed ribs 
  • how to rot the carrot 
Please note: The brain is not in the pattern yet. I made that last minute and have to see if I can recreate it.

Supplies: *read through the pattern, some of these supplies you won't need. It depends on what you make.
embroidery floss in white and red (or split yarn)
regular ww white yarn

tacky glue
paint and/or felt pen in green, black and blue
blunt end yarn needle with work for most of it.  A sharp end needle will make things

Flossy the Thread Bunny

Hello again!

Today I bring you a tiny bunny. It is about 2.5in or 6.35cm long not including ears. This bunny actually evolved from one of my recent free patterns, Barley the Bear. I changed up some of the parts, including making a bigger head, to make this bunny.

I've also made a zombified  version. The zombie parts will be up next, check back for updates.
The carrot pouch was designed specifically for this bunny, free pattern here.

Now you can scroll down this page for the bunny pattern, look at the bottom of the page for the print friendly button.

Important Note about the yarns used:

To get the same sized bunny there's 3 options that I've used.
One option is a sport weight yarn, that's a #2 fine. 
2nd option, hold 2 strands of embroidery floss together. You will need 7 packs of one

Zombie Spree! Next pattern to be released

I didn't realize that making zombies could be so much fun!

This zombie spree actually started off with a sweet mini bear named, Barley. I made Barley for my Gnome who lives in a big dollhouse that I made him. You can see more of the gnome and his house on my other facebook page, Dollhouses and the things that go in them.

I also have a monster named Frankie who was made by my good friend, Kim Sofia. She has a facebook page called Kim's Sticks and Strings. Anyway, Frankie had
