Sew the top opening close; then weave in beads to create ‘ears’ – this is optional!

Glue/sew or embroider on some eyes.

ATTACHING THE MOON TO THE PAGE:
Use pins or stitch markers to pin the bottom part (the straight edge) onto the bottom of the page.

CCW-OUT-IN-SPACE-PART4-009CCW-OUT-IN-SPACE-PART4-010

Position the round part neatly (it should form a bubble – think of the moon as a glove); Sew only the top part (the round part) with whip stitch onto the page.

Then sew ONLY the piece in the center part of the bottom to the page;
this will be RND 1- 3 – see photo for guide.
There should be two openings on the bottom of the moon.

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

“Crochet is an art and crocheters it’s artists. Each crafted item is unique and own to its crafter”
