Aries: March 21 – April 19th

This is third in my series of Zodiac signs, Aries!

Aries is also known as the ram, and this little ram took me a while!

The other thing is I forgot to attach his little tag, oops. I’ll do that soon.

What I used:
Lion brand: Vanna’s Choice in Dusty purple and a size G hook
Premier Home Cotton and a size D hook
Safety eyes
chenille stem (or pipe cleaner based off what I feel like calling it)

To finish, sew pieces together using a little wire for the horns if you desire. I did so I could spin them around like I did…This is in no way 100% necessary. You can use a little wire as well in the feet/legs, but most of mine usually stand up on their own so I don’t worry about it. (The wire is the chenille stem/pipe cleaner. I find it to be the easiest way because I have those little buggers EVERYWHERE… yays for loving crafts!)

I hope you enjoy Aries and I’ll get started on Taurus soon so that it won’t be as delayed as this.

In case you missed it:
Aquarius
Pisces
