New Project: Tiny Undead Horde


Here's another project which was cut from the original plans for Creepy Cute Crochet-- the tiny undead horde!


Made entirely from felt, this is a project for those crafters that either
(a) like the undead critters, but don't really do the whole crochet thing.
or maybe
(b) have extremely limited space for undead storage

Materials:


Felt

Any color will do. you need about 2 square inches of felt per undead minion. I suggest using felt with at least 20% wool content. The pure acrylic stuff tends to fall apart on me, especially when working on such a small scale


Scissors

You want small, sharp-pointed scissors for this. Embroidery scissors might be a good bet here if you have some.


Needle and thread


Embroidery Floss

Black (DMC #310) and Red (DMC #321), two strands at a time.


(Optional) Storage Tin

I used the 2" diameter Wilton favor tins

Assembly:

Here's my lich king in progress.






...and now I stitch the two body layers of my lich king together. Note how I've tacked the crown under the top layer.




...after stitching around the edges, I go back with red floss to tack on the lich king's cape.




...here's the back view to see how the cape is attached


If you would like to make a container to store your tiny undead horde, I have a PDF sheet of labels available for you to print here


All done! Please use your tiny undead minions responsibly.
