Assembly 

Now we are going to assemble our new magical little friend! You will need your needle, stuffing, scissors, embroidery/cross stitch thread, and all of the unicorn parts you created. Start by making sure your head is stuffed firmly and weave in the end. Now sew the ears and horn onto your unicorn head, but make sure to leave a little space between the horn and each ear.

Stuff the body and line it up on the head, make sure the front of the neck lines up on the head where you switched from color (A) to (B), use dress making pins if necessary to keep the body and head in place while you sew the two pieces together. Add a little bit more stuffing into the body before sewing the head and body together completely. 

Stuff the arms and legs, but be sure to not overstuff the arms, this will cause them to stick out from the unicorns body. Then sew the legs and arms onto your unicorn. Weave in all ends and trim them.

 Cut long strips of yarn that you will use for hair on your unicorn. You will add hair around the horn on the top of your unicorn head, and down the back of the head. Where you would like to place hair insert your hook behind the post of the stitch and loop the yarn through. Then trim the hair to the desired length.

 

Now we will embroider on the eyebrows and nostrils. Using black embroidery thread insert your needle into any stitch around the eye area.

Pull the needle through two rows above the eye, this is where your eyebrow will start.

 Now count over two stitches and down one row, pull the needle back through into the stitch where you first started. So you will now have both ends of the thread in one stitch.

 

Tie a knot, and trim the ends. Then use your scissors or the end of your hook and hide the ends inside your unicorn head.

Repeat this process for the nostrils, and using black embroidery thread sew on your nostrils. Now weave in any loose ends and trim them. And that's it, you now have your very own little unicorn!!!

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
