Welcome to the final week of our Crochet Along! In this lesson we’ll be putting all our pieces together to make this owl toy come to life. Attach the eyes and beak to the head using a tapestry needle, add the rest of your stuffing and then stitch the head shut once you’re happy with the shape. Finish by attaching the wings and feet to the body of the owl. Use the rows on the owl’s head as a reference to make sure the eyes align perfectly. You can customize the ear size by adding a few extra stitches while you’re sewing the head shut to make them more prominent.
Tip: You can choose the safety eye size that feels best to you, or stitch up two pupils by creating a magic ring and 6 single crochets in a black worsted weight yarn.
18mm black safety eye seems to work well. Or any size close to that.
I purchased THIS pack of safety eyes from Amazon.
You can also use buttons! Lots of options!
Be sure to show us all your finished stuffies! I love all the colors you have chosen for your Owls and can’t wait to see them all stitched up!
