2. New Dress a Day: The Ultimate DIY Guide to Creating Fashion Dos from Thrift-Store Don'ts

by Marisa Lynch

This is the book that was born of the fabulous blog New Dress a Day in which author Marisa Lynch took on a challenge to DIY ONE OUTFIT every day on a budget of just $1! The following 365 days resulted in tons of cute looks that were refashioned from thrifted or cast-off clothing. Imagine a muu-muu being transformed into a cute little dress, and you get the picture. You'll love the blog, and the book is awesome too! You'll find a whole variety of DIY fashion projects, from dresses, to t-shirts, to making costumes from thrift store finds.

knit your own zombie bookKnit Your Own Zombie: Over 1,000 Combinations to Rip 'n' Reassemble for Horrifying Results
by Fiona Goble

You can probably imagine that my three boys were pretty big fans of this book when it arrived in the mail. The knit zombie patterns are really adorable (adorably creepy!), and you can customize them by assembling the dolls any way you want, using different parts of patterns for ghoulish torsos and malformed limbs. Patterns for a classic zombie, Frankenstein's Monster (the original zombie!), a zombie cop, and even a female zombie fatale are including, among other patterns.
