F/O with invisible join leaving long tail for sewing

Iris shown with Beach Glass



 Assembly:

Sew iris section to the cone.  I attached so the bottom of the iris is just touching the top of the first row of white
Sew the blood in whatever position you like.  You can leave the entire iris exposed like I have above, or get super creepy and have the blood flowing over the iris.  The choice is all yours!

Hide all your ends and snip 

Using Red Embroidery floss, add details for bloodshot eyes.

And, we're done!   I hope you enjoyed my very first pattern and post!  If you like this pattern, be sure to follow me on Instagram @NotYourYiyasCrochet and also on Facebook at Not Your Yiyas Crochet

It's officially winter here in New England, and mother nature has come through with that cold air we never seem to get used to.  It's a whopping 11 degrees out currently, and my ears are cold just thinking about it!

For those of you who aren't familiar with a Nor'Easter, consider yourself lucky.  It's a storm that forms off the coast of the North Eastern United States (I'm in the Boston area). Those of us ne…
