EMBROIDER STARS • NIGHT OWL ONLY

Embroider the stars using lightweight yellow yarn. I’m using the same yarn as the eye circles. Thread your embroidery needle with 30 inches of yarn. Double knot end. To embroider stars, remember how to draw a five point star and mimic it with your embroidery needle.

EMBROIDERING & ATTACHING EYES

You’ll now be embroidering and attaching the owl’s eyes. The key to embroidering on crochet is to make sure to insert your needle through your stitches and not in a hole between stitches so your thread remains secure. With black embroidery thread and needle, embroider eyes on eye circles. For sleepy eyes, make sure eye circle’s yarn tail is on the right and for happy eyes the tail is on the left. Embroider eyes on rnd 2 and eyelashes on rnd 3 of eye circle.
