Download and print the Zombie Her and Zombie Him patterns. For each doll, cut two body patterns from muslin fabric. Set aside.

AudreyPettitThermOWebBlendZombiesTut1

Cut a piece of Halloween fabric large enough to cover the body of the doll. Apply Heat n’ Bond Lite Sewable Iron-On Adhesive to the wrong side of the fabric, following manufacturer’s directions on the packaging. Repeat this process with a smaller piece of fabric to use for one eye, as well as a small piece of  StitchnSew™ Fleece to use for the other eye.

Cut circles out of the small fabric piece and fleece piece to use as eyes. Iron pieces onto the face of the doll to set. Randomly stitch around the eyes using straight or zig-zag stitches.

Hand stitch mouths using embroidery floss, and add buttons to the eyes.

When the face is finished, iron the Halloween fabric to the front body of the doll. Flip the fabric to the back side and trim off any excess Halloween fabric.

to create the shirt, apply the iron-on adhesive to the back of a small piece of bat fabric, centering the adhesive behind a bat you would like to use for an applique. Trim bat design out of the fabric.

AudreyPettitThermOWebBlendZombiesTut4Cut a 2″ x 5″ strip of contrasting Halloween fabric for the main part of the shirt. For the Zombie Her doll, I stitched this strip onto a second piece of selvedge muslin fabric. I skipped this step for Him. Iron bat applique to the center of the fabric strip and add stitched detailing to the bat, then iron shirt strip onto the doll body. Flip fabric to the back side, and trim off any excess shirt.

Cut zombie hair from yarn. Pin hair to the front body with the hair ends going down the face towards the body and the other ends sticking above the top of the head. Pin the doll back to the doll front and machine stitch around the edges, leaving enough of an opening to turn the doll inside out. Stuff doll with polyfill fiber and slip stitch opening closed.

For the arms, cut a long 2″ wide strip of Halloween fabric and StitchnSew™ Fleece, and piece together with the fleece against the wrong side of the fabric. Fold in half, right sides together, and machine stitch along the edge to create a tube. Flip the fabric to the right side, cut the tube in half to create two arms, and machine stitch closed the top and bottom openings. Hand stitch the arms to the doll body.

    I have only tried the adhesive tape, and I love it. Would love to try other products.
