The Zombie Pin Cushion

Featured
So your a fashion forward necromancer, or a seamstress with a penchant for raising the undead, or maybe your just looking for a gift for that special horror buff.  Well, whatever the case may be, this is a fun project that's sure to please.

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?

The first step is to print off, 1 each Pin Cushion Base and 1 each Brain Cutting Guide.

You can find both .stl files here on thingiverse along with the print settings I used.

Step 3: Next lets start in on the BRAIN!!!

The first step to making the brain is to trace out the cutting pattern using the Brain Cutting Guide.  Do this like in the picture tracing around both the inside and outside, with a colored pencil.  You may have to trace a couple times to see your mark well.  Do this four times, as shown in the pictures.

Step 4: You may need a fellow named Edaward for this part.

The next step is to cut out your patterned pieces.  To do this just cut out your felt along the outside perimeter.
