Friday 13th Part 1 at That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
Are you superstitious? It's Friday13th today, a day when things can go terribly wrong!! 

Friday 13th Part 1 is our theme at That's Crafty Challenge Blog for the next 2 weeks. 

You can interpret this however you want, something scary as the film with the same name brought us or is it for you about superstitions, black cats, walking under ladders as is always with our challenge you are free to interpret the theme however or wherever your imagination takes you.
I have for my inspiration piece gone with the slightly scary, so without further ado I would like to introduce you to Vince, Voodoo Vince to give him his full name.

Vince stands about 9" high and has been made using calico which I stained with strongly brewed tea before sewing him. I draw the pattern out first and then cut the fabric out. He has been machine stitched and hand stitched together. His eye area has been stitched using free motion and his eyes are vintage buttons from my huge button collection. His mouth is some zip scraps and I have appliqued  on his his heart using the sewing machine.  My favourite part of him is his No. 13 medallion that hangs proudly around his neck. Of course no suitably dressed voodoo doll can be without his obligatory pins and he proudly sports 3 in his heart and 3 in his head.
The team have had some wonderful idea's for this fortnights theme which you can see HERE
We would love to see how you interpret this fortnights theme and if you enter our challenge you could be the lucky winner of £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty.
