Ragdoll of the corn

OOps my first zombi rag doll is out of her closet!!!! Just finished sew her gingham dress. Pretty happy with the dress although it was frustrating at first and I found it a little less forgiving than my tiny little dresses that I make for my bunny's.
I want to add a little collar to the dress and maybe a bit of ric-rac. I was happy with the hair but not sure how to secure the plates. I think there are some instructions in one of my doll books I'll have a look for it later.....Her eyes are even it's just the angel of her head. She will have big brown button eyes, a little stitched on nose and a little embroidered smile. The instructions for this pattern mentioned to use a pink texta for her cheeks, not sure if I'm game enough to give it a go. I'll try it on a piece of scrap cloth first. Oh and she needs knickers!! I bought this pattern from Threadbare Primitives.
I'm making these rag dolls for an up coming market on the 13th of February. I won't be selling these in my Etsy shop I have other new things to go in there soon.

She is cute, even if she does look a little zombie-ish. Don't we all before we get ourselves put together in the morning though?
