Before browsing this gallery of Patricia Waller crochet creations, you may want to evacuate any children in the area. After all, these versions of popular cartoon characters are unapologetically morbid, to the point where even adults may have a difficult time sifting through these pictures. From Winnie the Pooh hanging himself to Bambi being sliced up by a huge cleaver, Waller juxtaposes the warmth and comfort of animated characters and crochet items with brutal scenarios. It’s this bizarre contrast that makes Waller’s work standout amongst a sea of generic knit products.

Other memorable characters which have undergone Patricia Waller’s surreal treatment include Miss Piggy, Hello Kitty, SpongeBob SquarePants, Pinocchio, Bugs Bunny, Tweety Bird and much more. Her website features many crochet creatures enduring horrific tortures and being victims of traumatic violence.
