Zombie Felties

Zombie Felties: How to Raise 16 Gruesome Felt Creatures from the Undead
by Nichola Tedman and Sarah Skeate

Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate awaken their inner George A. Romero and focus their creative attention on the malleable, fuzzy softness of felt inside Zombie Felties: How to Raise 16 Gruesome Felt Creatures from the Undead.

With only the most basic of sewing skills, crafters can raise their own macabre multitude of Zombie Feltie creations from the undead with an average construction time of less than one hour per pattern. Each design includes a full-color photograph of the finished project, as well as an illustrated, instructional overview, pattern diagrams, and a convenient list of everything needed to complete the project.

Zombie Feltie friends can be customized with limitless embellishments and they make great Halloween decorations, party favors, finger puppets, key rings, and even mobile phone mascots. Get ready to shudder as you stitch!

These zombie projects were super fun! I made three for my sister for Christmas and had a blast when she opened them. They came out really cute...
(Pumpkinhead, Zombie Puppy, and Zombie Vampire)
I also made this cute "Dead Ducky" for one of my co-workers.
These are all even cuter because they are only about three inches tall. However, I will tell you that sewing something this teeny is much more difficult than they make it out to be...I loved the outcome, but I spent about 8 hours making these!!
My advice - photocopy the patterns to sew slightly larger versions!
