Crochet Zombiebot Amigurumi (Free Pattern)

No one knows what kind of accident this little crocheted 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. When you do, he'll be your friend for life.

Step 5

TO ASSEMBLE ZOMBIEBOT
 
• 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 from one long straight stitch with plenty of tiny straight stitches crossing it at right angles. Using one strand of beige floss, attach the left eye to the head.
 
• To make the damaged right eye, take one of the pen springs and sew one end of it to the face, using the 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.
 
• 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.
 
• Attach Zombiebot’s head to his body using the leftover tail of yarn.
 
• 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.
 
• Stuff the legs. Embroider a tiny scar on the right leg, and attach both legs to the body with the tails of yarn left over from crocheting.
 
• Using the photograph as a reference, gently press the screws and the nail into position on Zombiebot’s head.
