Assembly Required

You’ve got your pieces now, so let’s finish up. Using about 1 to 1 1/2 yards of black yarn and your tapestry needle, place the glasses piece in place and begin stitching!

Next, place your nose piece in position. If you notice the helmet from the picture above, the dark strip on the bridge of the nose touches the eye piece. This means you can have the nose piece touching the corners of the eye piece too when you stitch it on.

Using about half a yard of red yarn, load up your tapestry needle. You’ll be using an embroidery back stitch to make the three red streaks of “blood” over the left side of the helmet. If you need to learn how to do it, you can watch this video here. Or you can do the “blood” streaks anyway you want. 🙂

And now, with about 1/2 yard of grey yarn on your needle, and with any stitch you want, you can make a small dot on the bottom left side of the cozy for the speaker piece.
