At Mr X Stitch we love to review textile art and embroidery books for you. There are so many great books to discover, packed with needlework inspiration and textile techniques, so we dive into each book to find out what’s good, what’s bad and let you know why you should pick it up.
Zombie Felties contains 16 recipes to make undead creatures out of felt. The patterns get more complicated as you work through the book, but there’s something for you to get stuck into regardless of your skill level.
The characters are pretty cool, my personal favourite was the Zombie Puppy, but some of the later characters such as the Zombie Bride do a good job of combining cute and mildly disturbing.
Each pattern comes with clear instructions; one page explains what to do and is accompanied by a page of illustrations for each step, and this makes the patterns virtually foolproof. If you need a bit more help using felt, we can help!
I think this is a great book for getting people started with making plush toys. You cannot beat a bit of zombie action – and it’s a fantastic way to get people into crafts. You can buy the book on Amazon here and at all good bookstores.
Now, where’s the pirates vs ninjas toy book, eh?
