Small amount of worsted weight yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft Sunshine)
Small amount of black felt
Magic Ring = tutorial here
st = stitch
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
Star (make two)
9 dc in a Magic Ring, sl st into first dc and pull ring closed
ch 1, (*2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc* in next st, sl st into next st), repeat () around
Leave a long tail on one or both stars for stitching them together.
Weave both stars together using the whip stitch in the inside loops only (or your preferred join method). Begin stuffing when one arm of the star is left, finish weaving, continuing to stuff as needed. Fasten off yarn end and weave through the plushie to hide the end.
Cut eyes in the felt and attach with glue.
