The eyes

Let's do the magic loop again! But this time, a little bit smaller. Using green yarn:

Round 1: 5 sc in magic loop (5)
Round 2:
inc x 5
Round 3:
10 sc

Invisible fasten off with a long tail. 


If you're having trouble seeing the stitches in this teeny tiny magic loop, use the 3 stitch markers that came in your kit and mark the stitches as you make them.

⚠️ If you're going to give this to a child younger than 3 or to a pet, don't use safety eyes! Safety eyes aren’t safe. Confusing, I know. You can embroider eyes on instead.

If safety eyes are a go, then put them between rounds 2 & 3. The flat side of the backing should face the yarn. Watch the video below for a demo on how to count rounds and stitches, and put safety eyes in correctly:

Now use the yarn tail to attach each eye spanning rounds 3-6.

But hold up! The way you sew the eye on is different from how you sewed the belly on, since this is a 3D piece going onto another 3D piece:
