All the adorable zombies made here are from the wonderous book, “Zombie Felties: How to Raise 16 Gruesome Felt Creatures from the Undead” by Nicola Tedman and Sarah Skeate. Pick up a copy at your local library, like we did!

When people say “with undying love,” this is probably not what they meant. This is the second installment in my feltie series “Undead for the Holidays.” We move from a zombie groundhog to a zombie cupid who is impaled upon one of his own love arrows (made out of a red pipe cleaner). I briefly considered doing two love struck lovers but ultimately decided to go with the classic cherub with a few zombie modifications. For contrast I made the body gray and used bright yellow for the hair and black for the wings. This gave him a devilish appearance rather than the typical angel one. In addition I embroidered an eye socket hole that, combined with some red thread for blood, makes a nice little heart shape. With this little guy on the loose I think some people will be side stepping a few cupid’s arrows this Valentine’s Day.
Yes, that’s right! It’s Groundhog Day! One of the most under appreciated holidays when it comes to crafts. That’s why I decided to make my very own and well… it’s kind of unconventional. It is part of a collection I’m creating called “Undead for the Holidays.” Each holiday craft will feature a zombie. I was inspired to do this by the book Zombie Felties: How to Raise 16 Gruesome Felt Creatures from the Undead . They were a lot of fun to make so I thought I would like to make some original ones as well. The first is the one you see here. Note the vacant look in his eyes and his lovely blood shadow. Looks like 6 more weeks of a cold dead winter!
