While searching for new crochet patterns I came across Christen Haden's book Creepy Cute Crochet (Zombies, Ninjas, Robots and More) and had to check it out. After a two week waiting list I was able to borrow it from the library and after making my first doll, ended up going straight to the bookstore and buying my own copy. This book is great for the crocheter with teens, preteens and everyone with a quirky sense of humor. There are patterns for your "corporate zombies" and "amazon women" friends as well as other adorable patterns to suit your friends and family. Patterns range from Easy to Epic, but once you do one, it becomes easier. Clear pattern directions to follow and great pictures, definitely a book to I would recommend.
I've started an army of minions to protect my craft room.
