I've been making custom felt zombie plushies for a while now, but I haven't shared them here. Oh noes! So, here's me making up for it ^_^

This is Simon, Zombie Neurologist.

Here you can see his removable heart and bones.

I *did* make Nikki a dress, but I don't seem to have a photo with her wearing it. Odd. You can see in this photo that zombie girls have a small slit under their left breast - the heart is under there and can be removed. They also have bras - because I felt a little weird contemplating making zombie breasts ^_^

Two zombie babies! Meet William and B.B. ^_^ They have removable hearts and bones, and semi-removable eyes (it's on a string) and guts (two ends are sewn in). Their dummies are also removable (attached with a snap closure).

Greyson Harvey - the '80s rocker zombie. He has a removable heart and bones, and tie ~_^

This is Paul, the Punk zombie.

And Ellen, the Emo zombie.

They were a couple order - and the person who ordered them requested every single custom feature ... removable eyes, heart, guts, bones ... they took a while to make ^_^

And the most recent zombie I made is Iris - with a large removable eye, obviously ^_^

I made one other zombie, but I can't find a picture of her ; _ ; Still, I have four more orders, so it's not like you'll never see another zombie! ^_^

They are all made from felt and embroidery thread, and are completely hand sewn. I use poly-fill to stuff them, and the ones with a removable eye also have a plastic bead, to stop their eye thread being pulled into their heads.

I'd love to hear what you think of them! ^_^

Thanks everyone ^_^

Bec, I originally based my basic pattern on one from Nuno Life (http://nuno-runo.blogspot.com/2009/11/fashion-doll.html), but my zombies are quite a bit bigger, I sew the head and torso together before stuffing, I attach the limbs differently, I add a sort of bead and wire ball-socket joint into each of the limbs to make the attachment stronger, and of course add a lot more blood and wounds ^_^

I do the wounds by cutting a random shaped hole in the limb and sewing red felt inside to make a kind of pocket, then place the bone inside and add stitches to prevent it from falling out. The heart and bones are pretty easy to make (although the bones are annoying to stuff), but the guts are a bit trickier. I cut out a long rectangle and sew it closed, stuffing and stitching across the entire thing every few stitches, to make it bendier and more gut-like.

Good luck with your zombie making ^_^
