zombies are out to get you

This Halloween Shawn and I participated in the Zombiethon run/walk around the Silverlake reservoir. We dressed up like zombies, terrorized a few Silverlake residents and had a lovely time walking around the reservoir on a beautiful October afternoon. Of course it was all for a good cause of raising awareness about brain cancer.


Since we’re pros in the zombie transformation department, Shawn won first place in the costume contest! He got a gift bag with a bunch of cool stuff, including an awesome limited edition zombiethon tee shirt, some gift certificates and of course a zombie craft kit. Of course, I completely hijacked the craft kit. It as put together by Home Ec and included everything you need to make some awesome zombie embroidery.

I stitched this zombie boy and girl on kitchen towels following the pattern from Sublime Stitching. The iron on patterns were super easy to follow, even for a first time stitcher like myself. Not to mention they look scary and awesome. It is kind of addicting too. I suddenly have the urge to stitch creepy little faces on fabric, sweatshirts, tees, towels, anything. Best of all, I finally get to use all that embroidery floss I’ve been holding on to from my friendship bracelet days (yeah we’re talking pre-teens).

You can check out Shawn’s photos from the event here and see more of the zombie madness. Also, check out our Halloween costumes (and a lot more)!

    I’m pretty sure that the real reason Shawn won is because he actually IS part zombie.

    I’m incredibly jealous of all your zombie fun! Great embroidery!

  5. AWESOME! I want to take part in a zombie run for charity, I didn’t even know things like that existed. Ooohhh…I want every day to be a dress up like zombies and terrorize innocent passerbys…for charity, of course!

    LOVE the stitching, that is so great!

    Your work is quite crisp and tidy for a first time stitcher. Stick with the embroidery. You’ve got a knack for it, and embroidery rules.

    Big congratulations on the win, Shawn! I’m not at all shocked that he took home the prize considering your expertise in all things zombie. 🙂

    Your stitching is amazing! I’d never have guessed it was your first attempt; it looks perfect to me.
