You could always do applique. Just cut out the shapes in the colors you need, arrange them together, and sew them to fabric stretched in a hoop (or on a purse or whatever). I've done this before and it's just as pretty.
Or, if you don't want to sew at all, use a strong fabric glue.

Adding ideas for missingwillow...I agree with the applique ideas shared, and there are some really neat iron on tapes, in place of glue. And also...you can modify pictures in your computer, and print them on fabric! There are many neat programs that can morph things for you. You just scan or upload the photo, and can play around with it in the program until you get it how you like. You don't have to buy the special photo fabric/printer stuff.

Just cut muslin or linen to the proper size {iron first!} and double side {regular two sided} tape it to the top of a standard sheet of paper. 80# text paper works best..just a bit thicker paper to draw it through the printer. Then remove fabric from paper, and mount your "painting" however you wish. Your cotton fabrics will work best for this. Polyester has a resist, and does not take the ink well.

Hope this helps with your zombie project  Grin

I've had some success with printing on fabric but I used freezer paper and ironed the fabric to that first.

This is just what I need!  Inspiration and support.

Maybe someday my draft room will look at nice as yours.  Right now my craft things are crammed into boxes in the cold attic.  They were starting to take over the living room, too, until I banished all but my "current" project.
