Let me explain the zombie theme.... Mom (Millie) is working with a friend of ours to set up a trip to some fan fest where the Walking Dead cast will be so we were doing some zombie theme items. (If you see a Frankenstein's monster rather than zombie don't feel too bad, so did my daughter. By the way August 30th is Frankenstein day - bet you didn't know that!)
Scrap worsted weight yarn, H hook
Step 1: Make a crochet rectangle slightly wider than your tissues and slightly taller. I did 14sc x 25 rows in lion cotton with an F hook.
Step 2: Make 2 smaller rectangles, exactly half as wide and same length. Naturally mine were 7 sc x 25 rows.
Add in your tissues to check for fit.
You could stop here for a pretty cover, add some flowers, or beads, or whatever will make it pretty. OR... make a zombie, monster, person thing.
The eyes are plain circles.
Rnd 1: 6 SC in a ring,
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each of the 6
Rnd 3: 1 sc in 1, 2 sc in 1 around. You'll have 18. If it is too big you can of course stop sooner. Be smarter than me and leave a big long tail to sew your eyes on.
Sew the black circles onto the white circles (you could try red for some creepiness).
Sew the white onto the tissue case.
If you make one send me pictures and permission to post them and I will make a little gallery. If you have it on the web send a link and I will link back to you too. Lets have fun! - Kristina
