Ahhh, that wasn't very nice. I try to avoid saying such things, not always successfully.

Congratulations on finishing, can you please post a photo? I wanna see!!!!!!

I'm sure it's fine! I sometimes stick something like a yarn needle in to rearrange the stuffing and it helps, too. Can't wait to see it!

Neither of you are seeing anything until its finished - unless you want to help me by giving me a tutorial on how to sew the felt eyes and nose? Never sewn in my life lol. apart from seaming up this guy lol

Hot glue?

I've never sewn anything like that onto something knit. I'd help if I could, guess I'll just have to wait.

I could probably teach you to sew if you wanna learn, you just need a yarn the same color as the felt and a yarn needle

Googling....

How to make eyes for knitted toys
The eyes in this one are knotted yarn...on an OWL! It's not what you're asking about but I thought you might like to see.

Nautie A toy pattern. The quote below is from way down at the bottom.
Quote:

Make eyes by cutting two pairs of circles out of felt: a white circle about the size of a dime, and a black circle which is slightly smaller. Cut a narrow wedge from the black circle to make a "Pac-Man" shape. Using photo for reference, glue or sew the black and white circles together, then glue or sew the eyes to the nautiloid's face.
Hmmm, I'm afraid the links won't be much help but maybe they'll be something you'd like to know.

I usually just do a more embroidered eye rather than felt. It is hard to sew them on neatly. Hopefully Shadowfox can help.

This is sewn along an edge but it's basically what you would do around the eyes for your owl.

I think I have worked out how to do it - however trying put thread into needle is most difficult *sigh*
