If that was your guess as to what I was making in the last post, you were correct. Trish of Crafty Planet ordered this from me as a Christmas gift for one of her friends.
Like the zombie frog, this squirrel's head is attached to his body with a magnet. The dead acorn (or side of ham, depending on how you look at it) attaches to the squirrel's left hand (or head or neck if you want to get freaky) with a magnet as well.
Also like zombie frog, I needle-felted the eyes, mouth, and gore.
This squirrel has quite a lot of mange and all-over body sores:
Yep, it just continues to get weirder over here, folks. And pictures really don't do this one justice. But the best part is what the recipient had to say about him:
"HOLY SH*T! I thought her frog was fantastic, but this SQUIRREL!! OMG - AND he's got HAM in his hand!! (do squirrels have hands??) AND he's got a small humpback! That girl is fantastic! Thank you thank you thank you!!"
Thanks to Trish for the order, and a big thanks to the recipient for the awesome feedback!
Hope you all had a fantastic holiday and got exactly what you wanted!
