This hole is where you will insert the safety eye. ?Insert the safety eye through the hole in the felt and then insert the piece 2 rows above where the increasing begins (basically at the bottom of her head, each eye should be placed so that there are approximately 7 stitches in between the eyes). ?Secure with the fastener. ?I used the same method that for the eyes that I did with the hedgehog which I found from Stephanie at All About Ami HERE.?This pulls the eyes inward a bit to make them more life like. ?This of course is optional, but I really like the effect that it gives the eyes.Cut a third circle out that is the same size as the other felt circles, about the size of a nickel or 3/4″ inch in diameter. ?Cut this circle in half. Each of these halves will be eyelids. ?Place them over the upper portion of the black safety eyes. ?With your needle and thread ( I used brown thread), stitch around the eyelid with a whip stitch to attach.Snow Owl Crochet Pattern 2I cut my felt the size of a nickel for the eyesCrochet Snow Owl 4Baby snow owl is coming along. I think she might be cute without the fun fur as well.Crochet Snow Owl Pattern 5This is how I tied the eyes to make them more life like. I found this method on All About Ami.Beak:With your grey felt, or whatever color that you have chosen for the beak, cut out a small triangle. ?The base should be 1/2″ wide and the length from the base to the corner end of the beak should be 1/2″ long.Attach the beak with your sewing needle and thread in between the two eyes. ?See the picture if you need a visual on where to place it. ?I used the white thread to attach the beak.Feathers:With your fun fur, surface single crochet the belly of the owl. ?You will attach your fur the outer edge of the owl’s “belly”. Don’t worry, this doesn’t have to be precise. It’s very forgiving! Single crochet along the surface in the shape of a large circle all around the belly. Fill in the belly stitches in this manner as well. ?I worked in a spiral, starting from the outside, making a circle and then going in to fill in the feathers, working around until I got to the center. I used scissors and gave the feathers a “hair cut”. ?Trim them down, and especially trim them near the eyes so they don’t block the owl’s view. __ Done!Add some fur in the same manner, by surface single crocheting, just above his eyes. ?Start at the upper right side of the eye and surface single crochet around the the opposite lower, outside portion of the eye. Turn and do one more row, working back to the upper inside portion of the eye. Tie off, and trim as wanted. ? I added a little bit of brown eye shadow just to the outer corners of the eyes and the outer “feathers”.Crochet Owl Toy Pattern 4I hope that you’ve enjoyed the baby snow owl.
