This post should have been published waaaaaay back in October but, well, it wasn't. So get into a Halloween frame of mind, because that was a perfect time to introduce this quickie and very well-received project: Zombie Felties!

This was not only a fun project in its own right - who wouldn't love making zombies???? - but was also terrific because the kids weren't afraid to take some risks and try new things; after all, who the heck can tell if you mess up a zombie

The book is available on Amazon for less than $12 and has all sorts of patterns ranging from easy to difficult; I highly recommend it. 

I won't be sharing any patterns here due to copyright issues and whatnot, but I will mention that if you search for "zombie felties patterns" you'll probably find a few online. 

So what are you waiting for? Go fill your classroom with zombies already!


  1. Do you think it would be okay to use fleece for this project? I have a ton of scrap fleece trying to find a way to use it up!


    1. I think fleece would actually work quite well. You might want to enlarge the patterns a bit for a slightly larger finished project, since the material would be a little bulkier making it a little harder for students to handle, but this would be a great way to use that scrap!
