! Beige (main) color yarn – I used “Jeans” by YarnArt (55% cotton, 45%
acrylic, 50g/160m) split in two strands. 1 skein should be enough. Jr
take 2 if you don’t want to split it but in this case thickness of the yarn
should be about 320m per 50g skein.
! Small amount of white color yarn for the eyes – I used “Nubuk” by
Kartopu (22% acrylic, 78% polyamide, 100g\550m).
Tip: You can use any yarn that is suitable for the crochet hook 0.8-1.0
mm. If you use thicker yarn, the height of the toy will increase sufficiently.
I do not recommend that you use the yarn thicker than mine. Make sure
main yarn and the yarn for the eyes have approximately the same gauge.

is very convenient to stuff hard-to-get-to places
using wooden sticks, toothpicks (if opening is very
small), or brushes of different thickness with
! Plaster – adhesive-backed fabric tape 1 cm wide to
work up the wire (the one you use to cover
! Glass or metal beads to add weight to the breast
TIP: You can use plastic pellets or glass beads from
an unwanted toy you already have, or you can get an
inexpensive one at a charity or thrift shop. Be sure
that you can feel the beads inside the toy. You can
also purchase new beads at a craft or hobby store.
