Zombie voodoo doll

A few weeks ago I bought a felt doll pattern from Gingermelon thinking that it would be a great way to start learning a bit about making stuffed toys and soft scultures. Around the same time, a friend of mine was lamenting about the people she works with (both her useless coworkers and her entitled clients). I decided to make my friend a voodoo doll that she could take her frustration out on the next time someone made her want to scream (which is often, as she works for a public library and has many “problem” patrons and co-workers).

I found a lovely pale green piece of felt in my stash and some contrasting dark green thread (I wanted the stitching to be a bit messy and to show), and I decided to make it zombie/dead thing style (because, let’s face it, there are many days when co-workers and clients can seem like the living dead). I winged the design and in the end it turned into dead thing as opposed to zombie, but I can’t seem to stop calling it the zombie voodoo doll.

As you can see, I haven’t sewn the head on yet, but otherwise, it’s pretty much done and I love it!
