🧵 Assembly information
Crochet two stars with the same color or with another, then put both together and make a single crochet union all around.
Embroider the eyes and mouth on one of the worked star, before sewing together, so you can hide the yarn inside.
Leave some stitches at the end of the round to have a hole to insert some stuffing.
Stuff the point and the middle of the stars.
