Crochet a cute little Zombiebot.
Just like people, crobots can get into trouble, too. No one knows what kind of accident this little bot has been in, but it was clearly a bad one. Someone has patched him up, rather roughly, but he still needs a lot of care to nurse him back to health. Even his silver cladding is rough and discolored, and one of his arms is hanging by a crocheted thread. He'll be so grateful for peace and quiet that all you need to do is find him a calm corner to call home - he'll be your friend for life.

<b>Yarn Type</b>
Double knitting (DK) or light worsted yarn (#3)

<b>Pattern Stitched</b>
Single Crochet

  • How to make a food plushie. Zombiebot Plushie - Step 9
    Step 9

    <b>To assemble Zombiebot</b>
    Stuff the head firmly, thread an embroidery needle with two strands of black floss, and embroider two scars on Zombiebot's face. Use the photograph as a guide to place them, and make each fro one long straight stitch with plenty of tiny straight stitched crossing it at right angles. Using one strand of beige floss, attach the left eye to the head.

  • Step 10

    To make the damaged right eye, take one of the pen springs and sew one end of it to the face, using beige floss. Attach the other end of the spring low on the face, then add a button at the lower end with several stitches, so that the eye appears to be dangling loosely on the cheek.

  • Step 11

    Stuff the body firmly and embroider it with a scar in black floss, using the same process as the face scars. Attach the second spring across the upper left torso, stitching it on at each end with beige thread.

  • Step 12

    Attach Zombiebot's head to his body using the leftover tail of yarn.

  • Step 13

    Stuff the arms. Attach the left arm to the body by its tail of yarn. For the hanging right arm, leave the top open with some stuffing protruding, and attach it on a length of yarn about one-half inch long, leaving it hanging loosely against Zombiebot's side.

  • Step 14

    Stuff the legs. Embroider a tiny scar on the right leg, and attach both legs to the body with tails of yarn left over from crocheting.

  • Step 15

    Using the photograph as reference, gently press the screws and the nail into position on Zombiebot's head.
