Reindeer #2

Feeling a little afraid to crochet with a darker yarn, I thought I’d try making the reindeer from sewsillylily again.  This time, I made 2 tails (One light and one dark) and sewed them together to give this new reindeer a lighter underside of the tail.  Instead of using embroidery thread to make eyes like I did with my previous reindeer, I used safety eyes from Lisa & Ed’s eyes and more.  I feel the safety eyes make such a big difference with how finished product looks.  This reindeer I made in half the time as the other one so I’m seeing an improvement with my crocheting skills already!

I found a lot of helpful amigurumi sewing tips from Planet June’s youtube channel.  She knows what she’s talking about and has a lot of useful videos!
