How to make a Magic Ring

PATTERN

BODY

Row 1. Using Color A start by making 5 sc in a magic ring (5)

Row 2. Work 2 sc in each st around (10)

Row 3. Sc in next st; 2 sc in next st – rep 5 times (15)

Row 4. Sc in each of next 2 st; 2 sc in next st – rep 5 times (20)

Row 5. Sc in each of next 3 st; 2 sc in next st – rep 5 times (25)

Rows 6 - 10 do 25 Sc around

Change color here

Rows 11– 17 using Color B do 25 sc around


The body is finished

Do not sew it just yet. Leave it aside until other segments are made and sewed on


SOOTHER (Gauge here is 6 sc per inch)

Row 1. Using Color C start by making 5 sc in a magic ring (5)

Row 2. Work 2 sc in each st around (10)

Row 3. Sc in next st; 2 sc in next st – rep 5 times (15)

Row 4. Ss 15. Tie off.

For the handle, make chain of 12 using Color B.

Both loose ends of the handle simply pull threw the center of the purple circle (like shown in the pictures below).

EYES

Row 1. Using Color E start by making 5 sc in a magic ring (5)

Row 2. Work 2 sc in each st around (10)

Row 3. Sc in next st; 2 sc in next st – rep 5 times (15). Tie off.

Repeat this step for the second eye.

Using Color F and yarn needle - make the eyelid and lashes.

At this point, we have the body, eyes and soother completed. Now it is the time to attach the eyes and soother to the body.

Sew the eyes with sewing needle making sure that you start with the line where the Color A is changed with Color B. Both eyes should be sewed closed to each other (touching each other).

The soother is attached just between the eyes – the lowest point. Pull threw the loosing ends and tie them firmly on the inner side of the body (like shown in photo B).

When this is done, you can start filling the owl with polyester fiberfill. Make sure that it is filled quite heavily.

Using the yarn needle, sew the owl, like shown in the picture.

DIAPER:

Cut the felt in a shape of letter H and following the dimensions:

length:3.5 in

width:6.5 in


With these dimensions you will have enough material to overlap the ends (just like in real diapers). If you end up with a bit too long ends you simply cut the extras.

Before attaching the diaper, make ‘wrinkles’ by using the thread (fuchsia) pull the yarn needle threw the very end of the 3 inch long diaper side (like shown in the pictures below).

Using the sewing needle, attach the diaper. With water resistant fabric paint marker, draw the flower on the front.

FEET:

Row 1. Using Color G start by making 4 sc in a magic ring (4)

Row 2. Work 2 sc in each st around (8), turn

Row 3. Work only 5 sc and then turn

Row 4. Work 5 sc, turn

Row 5. Work 5 sc, turn

Row 6. Ss all around. Tie off.


Repeat this step for the second foot.

Using the sewing needle, attach the feet.

WINGS:

Cut two circles 1,5 inch in diameter. After the circles are cut, then cut 1/3 of the circle and you will get the perfect shape for the wing. You can sew on the wing onto the owl or simply (like I did) glue it on making sure to attach just the upper part leaving the rest of the wing loose.

HAIR:

Cut 5 threads 4 inch long (Using Color D). Pull the threads threw the center of the owl head (Sc) (like shown in the pictures). When the hair is in place, cut it onto the 0.4 in length.

BOW:

Cut the pink felt following the dimensions: 0,5 x 1,6 inch.

Using the pink color thread simply circle the thread around the centered part of the longer side of the felt. Tie off. With the remaining loose ends, tie the bow to the hair.
