So I chose to create this unique needle book for Spookygrrrly in the birthday swap. I searched around for one that I could possibly use for inspiration but couldn't find any. She likes nostalgic horror figures, Zombies are pretty classic and I thought it'd be fun to create a needle book that would turn heads and also eat them. Hand sewn and drafted by me all in 2 days, I am one proud creator of this undead cutie! Enjoy, C&C always welcome but please remember this is my first attempt at a needle book.

The book open to show details.


Here is the back showing the bullet (button closure) shot, tongue licking its own wound and more brain.


Inside is, for very obvious reasons red & toxic green, I also added needles for use/photo shoot. Wink


What do you think? Thanks for looking ~V  Cool

Thank you sooo much. I have practice hand sewing, butI am kind of meticulous to the point of perfectionist. Smiley

Awesome idea! I love the brains and just how much thought you put into all the detail, like the bloodshot eyes and eye sockets. My needlebook (my first one, as well) is SO boring compared to this. ^_^

Ohh! Zombies ftw! This looks great, especially for a first go at it! Cheesy
I may steal your idea for myself though... Brilliant.

I'd love to see others renditions of this. What an honor to be someone's inspiration. Wink
