Make no bones about it...*

Do you ever have something come through your Facebook feed (or see something on a Pinterest board, or receive an email, or--if we go really old school here--actually see something in person at your local quilt shop or guild meeting) that you just HAVE to share?

That's how we felt when we ran across the image below on Facebook the other day:

Shanell Papp created this anatomically corrected crocheted skeleton, which was then featured on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.

As fellow fiber artists, we can appreciate the amount of planning and work that goes into such a project. And just in case you're not into yarn or crocheting, we looked through our Marblehead prints to find coordinating fabric colors. Because we know you want to sew a skeleton like this! The only bad news is that you'll have to come up with your own pattern for the skeleton.

Suggested fabric for bones:
We won't try to identify the organs and body parts you see beyond the skeleton--anatomy class was a long time ago--but you can match these Marblehead colors to the coordinating areas of the skeleton photo above.

Looking for a less labor-intensive Halloween sewing project?
While we may not be sharing the steps to make this skeleton, be sure to stop back here later this week for two easy-to-sew Halloween tutorials!
