Book Description

12 July 2010
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.

Product Description


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 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

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing death to life... 18 Jan 2011
By homey
Great product, my 37 year old misses has spent hours sewing bits of coloured felt together with various buttons and bits to form these great little creatures. Hours of relaxing fun for anyone interested in sewing or indeed the undead...

4.0 out of 5 stars Groovy and Grusome 5 Sep 2010
By F. Pullen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Putting aside the fact that I'm not too sure why anyone would want a zombie feltie this book is actually full of fun quirky designs. I guess with Halloween coming up these little critters could be in demand. If you like something different and are sick of cutesie sock animals and felt creatures then this is the book for you.

You don't need a huge amount of sewing skills (suitable for beginners) to make these felties but you will need a strong stomach given the exposed brains, eyes hanging out of the sockets and protruding innards. There a 16 felt creatures in the book with names such as dead duckie, zombie bunny and pumpkin head.

The first section of the book takes you through the basic stitches and techniques. Each of the projects come with a difficulty rating as well an equipment list, 2-4 pages of instructions and diagrams and a full page image of each zombie feltie. If there was ever anything to tempt teenagers into sewing I think these would be ideal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy cute! 26 July 2010
By anon
This book is really cute! If you loved the previous 'Felties' book then you'll probably love this one too. There are 16 adorable little zombie critters to make, all with simple instructions and to scale templates (no need to go searching for a photocopier!) They can all be transformed into keyrings, phone straps, appliques, etc. which make interesting little gifts :D My favourites so far are Dead Ducky, Pumpkin Head, Vampire Zombie, Zombie Fairy and Zombie Bride but they're all equally cute and unique. There is even instructions on how to make a little coffin shaped box to keep them in - this does require a colour photocopier or scanner.

The only reason I gave this 4 stars rather than 5 is because most, if not all of the patterns require either beads, sequins or netting that I had to go out and buy seperately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Zombies than The Walking Dead 20 Nov 2012
I love this book! I got it for Christmas last year but just started making the zombies as Christmas presents for this year and it is addictive fun! The patterns are so easy to follow and the narrative is great. Some of the components are a bit fiddly and some bits (pink ridged sequins) tricky to source but the end result is amazing and well worth the effort. 2 inch (approx) zombies for everyone this year. There is even a page at the end of the book to make a coffin box to present them in. A whole lot of awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this 13 July 2012
I have 12 little felt zombies looking at me while I write this so I'd best write a good review about them! I love this book, I buy loads of craft books and end up not making very much from them, this book I went page to page and made almost every project. The patterns are easy to follow and I ended up taking half finished ones into work in an envelope to make in my lunch time. My 7 year old nephew was very impressed with the Thriller zombie I made him and he doesn't get impressed easily!

Highly recommend :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesomely cute critters 21 May 2012
I just love, love, love this book! It's full of really cool little zombie projects. At the start of the book there are instructions on all the techniques used in the projects. There are lots of handy tips there to help u through.
If you aren't all that experienced in making little fiddly things, I would suggest blowing the patterns up on a photocopier or scanner to make it a little easier.
The patterns are easy to adapt if you haven't quite got the exact materials, colours etc for the designs and they turn out just as well.
I really would reccomend this book to anyone that's a bit crafty and likes cute kooky things as well as horror and zombie lovers! Fantastic book and excellent buy at under a tenner!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastically freaky 8 April 2011
i just got this book in the post an instantly started to make the thrilla feltie, it turned out to be so much fun to do, seeing it all come together. i thought it would be fidgety with all the small parts but it wasnt so bad, i added a small brooch to the back and now have myself a lovely badge. i might try to enlarge the templates and make bigger felties! a fantastic buy.
