Zombie Felties are perfect for Halloween and since they are small, you really only need a small amount of felt and thread to make them, plus some unused buttons, beads or sequins to embellish them. Basic sewing and embroidery instructions are included and Zombie Felties actually use very simple techniques, so you can create them in a very short time. There are very complete step-by-step directions, which are accompanied by full color illustrations drawn in a clear and quirky style that are really easy to follow along with. There are sixteen zombie friends to make, but the designs offer many possibilities for combining different elements to make a whole lot more! Familiar zombies like the Classic Zombie or Vampire Zombie are included, as well as the more unconventional, like the Zombie Surfer or Baby Zombie. There's even the decidedly feminine Zombie Fairy or Zombie Bride. I thought the Day of the Dead feltie girl was really sweet (for a zombie!), with her floral eyes, beaded skeleton and holding her heart on a string. If you need a place to house your Zombie Felties when they aren't in use, the author even includes a coffin that can be copied and constructed from card stock for them to take their rest in. Zombie Felties is the perfect book to learn how to produce the most adorable zombies ever!
This is a great book. I've made the Day of the Dead Zombie for a friend's birthday and it was easy and fun. I'm planning on making many more for gifts for some of my weirder friends, as well as for myself. If you love zombies and crafts, or if you yourself are a crafty zombie, this book is for you!
Yo this is like the most fun book ever.????????????????xvfbyfgdgfhdgfnshfbdgfhgfhfgfhfgbchchchchfhfhfhfhfhfhh
Fun for the whole family to make and easy to alter for your own ideas.
It took me exactly one month to get this book from Barnes and Noble. With tons of phone calls to customer service and Corporate it finally arrived with a TON of excuses as to why it was not delivered promptly. I am pretty much discusted with Barnes and Noble at this time. The book is cute and has some really cute dolls in it. I gives a variety of dolls to work on and if everything is sew on instead of glued. Children can enjoy them to. Before you Order be sure you are going to get it as waiting a month is not good customer service.
my store manager showed this to me one day knowing i like to do stuff like this, and i fell in love i will say that it is really good for people who are just starting to get into felt and the ideas are creative but i would have liked to see more involved creatures when it came to the clothing and over all apearences of the pieces.
