Your Worst Fears Come Alive With Morbid Crochet Art

Accident 3: SharkAccident 3: Shark

Have you ever wanted to create morbid works of art out of yarn? Well this artist sure has, and I think she gets her point across quite well.

Patricia Waller was born in Santiago, Chile and moved to Germany shortly afterwards. Studying at various art schools, she received her Master’s degree in 1990 and continued studying all over the place. She now lives and works in Berlin, Germany and has showcased her work in the United States, Europe and Asia.


Not all of her art is morbid and scary; she also makes some pretty cute elephants and monkeys, but what would be the fun in those when it’s much more entertaining to see blood and guts strewn about everywhere?

Maybe some of these pieces could be used to teach children why they should listen to their parents. “When I tell you not to run with scissors, little Davey, this is what could happen to you.” Or they could even be shown what would happen if they don’t look both ways before crossing the street. Kinda cruel? Maybe, but it could save their lives one day, right? Either that or give them horrible nightmares.

How cool would it be to knit one of these while waiting in a doctor’s office? You could dress up in a cute little granny outfit, complete with granny glasses. While sitting in a room full of people, you could pull out your crochet and start working on it. Slowly, as people do, they would look over at you to see what you are making. Imagine their horror when they see you crocheting a cute doll with scissors puncturing her.

I’d bet you’d clear the waiting room out very quickly. Hmm, maybe I’m onto something here…

Why isn't this more popular?

I love it. I'm going to try applying it to cross stitching. I'm quite excited about it!

What is wrong with you people?

Find something productive to do with your lives. Such as; run with scissors, stick a fork in the toaster, test the iron with your tongue, be the one that tests the ice to see if it is thick enough to skate on, cross the freeway with your eyes closed, have the octuplet nut and her family move into your basement, live in a trailer park in Kansas, be the first to bungee jump without the bungee or at least teach your kids to play with matches. Come on folks this is a remarkable waste of time!
