Thread a beading needle with 1 strand of white floss and stitch the 4 white bugle beads in place under the nose to make teeth. Thread an embroidery needle with 6 strands of black floss and sew a large cross stitch where the zombie's left eye will dangle. Thread a beading needle with 2 strands of black floss and sew the right eye in place by taking the needle through the felt, then through the black sequin, the smaller of the 2 round white beads, and one of the tiny black beads, then back through the larger bead, the sequin, and the felt.
Add the dangling eyeball; Thread a beading needle with 2 strands of red floss and push it from the wrong side of the felt through the center of the cross stitch the makes the left eye. Feed first the second tiny black bed and then the larger round white bead onto it. Thread the needle back through the center of the white bead, then sew the floss back through the felt, leaving enough slack for the eyeball to dangle to the cheek. When the loop is the right length, bring the floss back through from the wrong side of the felt and wind more red floss around the loop of the eyeball to strengthen it. Finish off the floss on the wrong side of the felt.
Glue the bandage across the left-hand top of the head, taking the ends around to the back.

Thread an embroidery needle with 1 strand of pale gray floss, align the 2 head pieces, and sew them together with a small overstitch. Leave a gap at the base and pad the head lightly with wisps of stuffing, using a matchstick or tweezers to help you. Then stitch the gap closed.
Thread an embroidery needle with 1 strand of dark gray floss, align the body pieces, and stitch them together using a small overstitch. Pass the needle to the side of the bandages so that the stitches don't show. Leave the neck open. Pad the body with wisps of stuffing, using a matchstick or tweezers to fill it evenly. Stitch the body closed.
