Below are step by step diagrams, videos on changing colours and embroidering basic facial features such as bear noses.
HANDY TIP: It is a good idea to practice your embroidery on a scrap piece of stiff fabric or felt. This saves making a mistake on your amigurumi project.
The video below shows how to make simple eyebrows suitable for the projects in Amigurumi Lesson 2. Skip ahead to about 2 minutes in the video to view how to secure the yarn, and make both eyebrows with the same piece of yarn. NOTE: the demonstration in the below video uses a knitted toy, however the methods for adding facial features are the same, just replace the reference to each knitted stitch to each crochet stitch.
PRACTICE YOUR EMBROIDERY – Here are some step-by-step photos showing how to make one particular nose. Start off by cutting a small circular piece of felt and get your needle and embroidery floss ready!
