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!
