I made this for the Zombies Are Love swap. I just embroidered the the brain (freehanded it) onto a piece of commercial felt (of course it had to be green). I stuffed it with some polyfill to make it 3-D, which makes it a dandy pincushion. It's on a sequined elastic wristband, which you can't really see. I had originally intended it as a pincushion, but as I was making it I was thinking that I'd definitely wear it to go out. I guess it's up to my swap partner to decide!

I forgot that the shrinky dinks were going to be mirror images when they were done, so they're backwards. Doesn't matter for some, looks odd for others. There are intestines, hearts, brains, kidneys, severed hands & feet, and zombie heads.

Too cute! You did an awesome job on this.
Oh, and thanks a lot - now I have yet another project I want to make for my daughter for Christmas. Smiley
Seriously - this is very creative.
