Now, with the yarn and needle, sew through the body at the shoulder and down his arms to shape them. Pull yarn tight to make the arms stick out a little.
Features: Using embroidery floss, sew features in face using a simple backstitch. The eyes are done by sewing a straight line and pulling up the middle with a tiny stitch directly above the eye, catching the middle of the line.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Looking at this pattern now, I realize that it is really long and complicated. But I did it free-form the first time and it really wasn't hard.  I hope no one has too much trouble making it! If anyone does finish it, please please post pictures!

Here are my buddhas from Shannons great pattern!
The pattern was pretty easy to follow and I really didn't have any problems with it.  I made a few modifications to mine to suit my tastes (I added a pedestal and some embellishments).  I am really pleased with them.  One is for my son and the other is mine (can you guess which is which?).



Thanks again for such a great and creative pattern!

This rules!  The second I learn how to crochet better I'm totally making this for a friend of mine (we call him Buddha).  Alas, I just learned how to crochet and all my supplies are unavailable to me until tomorrow.

But, the moral of that story, THIS RULES!
