Here's a little zombie I made for MissingWillow in the OTT October Swap:



About 3.5 inches

Gross. But in a good way! Very creepy. For those of you who like the weird, crazy stuff!
I can tell that you spent time on this. I love your shading techniques. The colors are fun!
The teeth are all crooked...couldn't you afford a dentist??? A joke there. You did wonderful.
I would not like one for myself, but I like it all the same.

Did you embroidery right on top of your felt? 

The zombie was stitched separately on green felt, then cut out and sewn onto the orange felt with tiny stitches, then the hair and shirt were stitched, and then the moon shape with zombie attached were stitched to the black background fabric which was stretched on a padded cardboard disk.  Smiley

The layering technique that you shared explains why your pieces have so much dimension and depth...I love this piece a lot...technically done well and artistically done well...
