My fabulous partner Ghilie had mentioned she wanted a needlebook in the Adult Swim swap, so I had to oblige with the most brutal needlebook ever, Murder Needles! I decided to post it up as a separate project, as that was the first thing I had really made large-scale with felt and it was learning how to make a new thing, so I was happy with how it turned out.

I did Murderface's murder-face and murder-fro in felt, and then made a tiny freezer paper stencil for the facial details. I stenciled the text on the felt, and then sandwiched some cardboard on either side and steam-a-seamed it all together. This was sadly before I had any of the web stuff and I did it all with the 1/4 inch stuff, hopefully it will survive! I then just put a skull bead on a photoclip and attached it to close, just to give it a more 'metal' vibe.

I'm addicted to DDR. I need a 12-step program.

I love the detail of the skull bead and photoclip - genius! Well done. Although you've probably figured it out by now having finished your first big felt project...felt is terribly addictive!! Grin

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Thats hilarious! I love it!  You should email a pic of it to the adult swim guys and see if they put it on the air.
