Product description

Zombie Felties are on the march, and these felties aren't cute at all. Their eyes dangle from empty sockets, suspended by the merest thread; their innards protrude from soft felt bellies in unruly loops and swags of horrible pink floss; their broken skulls uncover a slithery sequinned suggestion of exposed brain matter. And the curse of the zombie can strike all kinds of being. Within these covers you'll find 16 projects for creating every possibility from gyrating Zombie Thrilla (in tribute to the late King of Pop), through gesticulating Zombie Bunny and Classic Zombie trailing his tiny grave bandages, all the way to Zombie Bride clasping a teeny, rotting bouquet. Naturally you'll recoil. You may not want to make them, but somehow you'll find that you have no choice. Zombie Felties are chillingly easy for even unwilling fingers to construct. Shudder as you stitch.

Review quote

I received this book whilst my brother and my sister-in-law were staying with us which was handy because it meant we could spend two very enjoyable evenings 'doing makeys'. Nila has made softies before and Tom has had a little go but Tom counted himself a novice. Zombie softies has 16 designs from which to choose, Tom and I made a two skull zombie, but Nila had a go at the three skull design (difficulty levels start at one skull and go right up to four). The patterns are ready to trace or copy at full size which was nice. Some pieces are teeny tiny so used up some of my silly-small scraps of felt. There are very good instructions for all the techniques and stitches you need at the front of the book and there are brilliant diagrams with very specific directions for each zombie, right down to how many strands of embroidery cotton to use. You do need a good selection of beads, buttons, threads, felt, and other miscellaneous haberdashery, we ended up with nearly all my boxes of treasure out on the table, but it was nice to be creative and use up some precious bits. The zombies are tiny and bits of the process were very fiddly but they are totally ace, so that makes up for any earlier extreme concentration in their construction! Tom, the novice, enjoyed making his zombie and with a little help and advice he was very capable. I think the book would be a fun project for a sewer wanting to work with some funky young types, even if they had never sewn before but if you were giving it as a gift into a non- sewing household it is worth putting in some supplies as if you were buying everything you needed from the instructions it would soon add up. I really liked this book and I really like my zombie, the book is going from here to Tom and Nila's so more horrific(ally cute) undead can be unleashed upon the world.-Jennyflowerblue.blogspot.com Did you think that all felties were lovable? Well, there's a darker side to the feltie character rarely seen public until now. Zombie Felties aren't cute at all, their eyes dangle from empty sockets, and their innards protrude in unruly loops and swags of horrible pink floss. However, they should appeal to teenagers and slightly ghoulish stitchers looking for projects that can be turned into keyrings, bag tags and other accessories. There are 16 projects in the book, from gyrating Zombie Thrilla (a tribute to Michael Jackson), through gesticulating Zombie Bunny and Classic Zombie, trailing his tiny grace bandages. This book should appeal to anyone wishing to raise 16 gruseome felt creatures from the undead.-Needle & Handicrafts
