The next pattern in the Halloween Guest Blogger Series is by the lovely Morine! Her ZomBee amigurumi pattern is adorably spooky. Hope you all enjoy this pattern.


About me

Hello!! My name is Morine and I’m the designer and maker behind Morine’s Shop. I’m Kenyan, born and raised. I learnt to crochet from my mother when I was around 8 years old. I didn’t do much but dishtowels until years later, I completed my first big project, a granny square blanket and I was hooked from then on. I picked up on amigurumi a few years ago after being encouraged by a friend to try it out and I love every minute of it since. I now mainly focus on baby and home d├ęcor designs and makes.

Inspiration behind the Pattern

ZomBee is based out of my first amigurumi design, Heimlich the bee. I wanted to modify the pattern and make it more Halloween-y but I decided to write up a new pattern all together. The name comes from merging Zombie Bee (what I initially wanted to call it). ZomBee has a much better ring to it, don’t you think?
