No Halloween without Tim Burton !

Last year it was Oogie Boogie, the year before that, it was Voodoo girl, this year, Sally Jack and Zero join them ! There can’t be a good Halloween without Tim Burton ! ^^ 

(Yes, there’s a bit of a scale problem here, but let’s pretend we didn’t see it, shall we? :p)

I made Sally with the free pattern of Patch Doll, by Irene Strange available here. Then I took the “real” Sally as a reference for the colors and details.

Her blue skin, the colors of her dress, the seams…

If I happen to make it again, I would change the pattern a little bit to make her head rounder.

The pattern is very well explained, but if you don’t like sewing little parts, it’s not for you ^^

And if you want Sally to stand up, you’ll have to add wire in her legs…

However, I kind of like the way this posture fits her everlasting gloom…

Jack and Zero as for them, are made with Nichole’s Nerdy Knots pattern, available here , that’s why the scale is off ^^

I didn’t take a lot of pictures of him, because he’s a last minute project… But when I saw Sally like that, I couldn’t leave her alone much longer !
