After all, who says a zombie can be useful and productive member of a civilized society? They're heads make great pin cushions after all.
This started out as a doodle I had a few days ago in a meeting. I don't sew very well but I thought the idea looked too good on paper not to bring it to life... er... unlife?

Step 5: Ever Wanted to Be a Brain Surgeon?
1. Start with two pieces of your cut out felt, and sew one edge.
