Here are the dollies zombie children play with.
(Sorry I have to link ya'll to flickr because this is my first post on Craftster.. )



This link is Anatomical Annie.


 She is made with a thrift store porcelain doll's head and limbs and stuffed felt with a hand stitched embroidery of all her lovely guts.


 This is her brother Butcher Boy Bob. His extremities came in the same baggie as Annie's. He's actually and educational toy for young zombies, if they should tire of a strict brain diet.
Here are a couple more close ups of the embroidery..


I made my own pattern for the bodies ( because I can't pass up a baggie of body parts at the thrift store) and machine sewed it and stuffed it with poly fill. I drew on the design with pencil and then embroidered with cotton floss on the stuffed body.. the limbs are handstitched in place.

hope ya like 'em...
