Place your eyes where you would like them and then remove to embroider your eyelashes before attaching the washer to the back. (This creates a little hole to help see where you want your eyelashes to go)

Tutu

To work the tutu, have the head towards you and body away from you (see pictures for example).

With color of choice create a slip knot and attach with a slip stitch to one of the front loops from round 13 (For a cleaner look attach at the back of the body)

Round 1: Ch 2 (this does not count as your first stitch), 3DC in the same stitch and in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first DC (144) Change to white (I carried my yarn as we will pick it back up for the last round, but fastening off works as well)

*Note – It is not necessary to count each stitch of the tutu, if a few are missed it will still have its nice ruffles

Round 2: Ch 2, DC in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first DC (144) Change to color of choice
Round 3: Ch 2, DC in each stitch around, join with a slip stitch to the first DC (144)

Fasten off and weave in end

Wings
Make 2
*I left the wings unstuffed*
(Each wing is made with two “feathers” that we will join together.)

Small Feather: With light gray
Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC
Round 2: SC INC in each stitch around (12)
Rounds 3-4: SC around (12)

Fasten off

Large Feather:

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC
Round 2: SC INC in each stitch around (12)
Rounds 3-5: SC around (12)

Do not fasten off, here is where we will join the feathers and continue the wing.

Round 6: Attach to the first feather with a SC. SC around the first feather and then the second feather (24 SC) This completes your join and is where your next round will start, from here we will work the wing.
Rounds 7-10: SC around (24)

Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew onto the body.

Make 2 stuffing lightly in the bottom half
With color of choice for slippers

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC
Round 2: SC INC in each stitch (12)
Round 3: SC in the first stitch, SC INC in the next, rep around (18)
Round 4: SC in the first 2 stitches, SC INC in the next, rep around (24)

Round 8: SC in the first 3 stitches, INV DEC 6 times, SC in the last 3 stitches (12) Change to ivory
Rounds 9-24: SC around (12)

At the end of round 24 pinch the leg flat and make 6 SC across the top to close, fasten off and leave a long tail to sew onto the body.

Accessories
“Ribbons” for slippers – Make 2

With color of choice, make a chain until it reaches around the leg, crossing at the front. Tension and stuffing can vary from person to person and this number may be different for some. As a reference my chain was 26. Fasten off leaving about 6 inches to sew onto the slipper.

Bows for Slippers – Make 2

Working in a magic circle make 4 DCs, slip stitch, 4 DCs, and slip stitch again, pull your string tight and wrap it around the middle of the bow 3-4 times. Tie/secure in the back and cut your string leaving a long section to sew with.

Headband –

Make a chain long enough to reach around the head, my chain was 48, fasten off leaving a long tail to sew with.

Bow for headband –

Working in a magic circle make 7 DCs, slip stitch, 7 DCs, and slip stitch again, pull your string tight and wrap it around the middle of the bow 3-4 times. Tie/secure in the back and cut your string leaving a long section to sew with. 

Assembly

1. Sew on the headband and bow. I placed the headband where I wanted it and sewed it in place, I had enough remaining yarn from my tail to tie a bow at the back.

2. Attach the wings onto the body starting at round 25 (near the top of her outfit) and ending at round 16 (right above the tutu). I placed the larger feather facing up.

3. Attach the “ribbon” for the slippers to each leg. I attached to one side, wrapped around the back to the front to create an “x” and secured to the other side of the slipper.

4. Sew each bow onto the outsides of the slippers.

5. Sew the legs onto the bottom of the body, making sure to keep them centered with the facial features.
