Gone are her lovely red strands of hair; her fall, sunflowery dress, and those sparkling green eyes.
No! They've been replaced by a blank stare, felt maggots, and ragged clothing. Oh the humanity of it all! (Or inhumanity!)
UPDATE! AHHHHHH! Look where I found her when I got home from work!
Step 1: How It Happened
Was it deliberate, or was it mindlessly planned by wandering Zombies on the loose from the Three Rings group? We may never know, but one thing's for sure.....nothing is sacred. A brain is a brain, stuffed or not!
1/4 yard solid black fabric (Apron)
1/2 yard ugly, mangled textured fabric (Skirt & Shirt)
1/4 yard Laced material(Bloomers)
Skull Iron on Patch
1/2 Yard cheap white fabric
Black and purple yarn
Black Embroidery Floss
Re-used stuffing from an old pillow
1/4 yard of black striped fabric for the legs
Tan felt, gray embroidery floss, small bits of stuffing
I'm sure the Zoms used the instructable on how to make a Raggedy Ann doll. They may not have brains, but they seem to know how to use a computer. It must be the gaming instinct in them.
Step 2: They Sewed and Sewed
They sewed the parts together, sloppily ripping open an old pillow, and transferring the stuffing to the inside of the body.
The legs and arms were sewn with the same, maniacle care.
Then the face...that horrible face. No emotion, just blank embroidered stitching.
Lastly, the hair. Purple, black, and very thin.
Step 3: The Rags That Clothed Her
The bloomers were made of lace, and fit around the Zombie doll's waist with a piece of ribbon.
The apron showed the most care. The Zombies took the time to change out the white thread to black. For finishing touches, they added skull buttons, and a very creepy skull iron-on patch.
Step 4: Maggots!
A piece of felt about 6" long was cut, filled with stuffing, and sewn together along the side. Then it was cut into pieces that were beveled at both ends.
A string of gray embroidery floss was sewn to the belly of the maggots, and wrapped around to give them a rippling effect.
Step 5: Brains and Maggots
One maggot sticks straight up, while another is attempting to dive further in for a more delicious meal. Two more were sewn to the sides of the opening.
Step 6: Mary Kay.....Zombie Sympathizer?
Mary Kay, what have you done?
Around the opening was a mixture of purple, deep red, blue, and smokey gray. Nice colors for a bruise.
