Danni and Charlie do craft

Two ladies and a whole lotta wool

Anatomical knitting and Parkenstein’s Monster AKA Zombunny

Thanks to the wonder of Facebook (and I don’t often say that) I found this amazing piece of knit/crochet hybrid awesomeness the other day:

I want to see this creation in the flesh (ah ha!), in fact if someone could provide the “making of” video I’d be eternally grateful.

It puts me in the mind of a little creation of mine, lovingly named Zombunny or Parkenstein’s Monster. I once did a knitting workshop in Reading, too many people were drunk so I mainly ended up with a number of small rectangular swatches in various colours. I tied the lot together and wrapped them around each other into a ball, brought the creation home and hung it up in the window.

My then housemate pointed out that it looked quite a lot like guts, so, for his birthday, I decided to create a dead-bunny to go around said guts. And Zombunny AKA Parkenstein’s Monster was born:




I confess (unlike Dr Frankenstein) I grew pretty fond of the little fella and consequently made a second one. The first I made was fully hand-stitched, the second I did almost entirely on the sewing machine. The latter was done in a fraction of the time. I intend to crack out a few leopard print Zombunnies in the not-so-distant future.

About thisischarlie

I'm Charlie Parker, one half of the craft duo Danni and Charlie do craft. I love crafting in all its guises, from baking to knitting to growing vegetables (which most definitely IS a craft). I am all about local - local wool, local shops, local communities. I am a novice drawer and doodler, my plan is to be better and do my own illustration zine and then hit the road with my wool and bearded Canadian. These are my dreams. Thank you for visiting my blogs.
