|You should have something like this:
Finish off. Thread black yarn into yarn needle and embroider face as shown in the first picture..
Or, make your own! I found that when I make things with faces, they sort of have their own personality and the face comes out different every time.
You can glue googly eyes, or add a felt little mouth, or even add blush to make it a demure little star. The possibilities are simply endless.
Enjoy your star! If you need help just leave a comment below, and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
