Sorry it has taken me soooo long to post this. I stress myself LOL didnt want too many details or not enough!

 

I think you could use regular yarn if you use 2 strands.

Please, feel free to question any of this and I will try to answer the best I can. To me this is easy but I have been crocheting with bags for over 6 years too.

putting out their stock) cut them approx 1 1/4 inches

Ch 1, turn

Hdc in next 4, ch 13, join to the ch 1, sc in same place as the ch 1, sc in each ch,

join in same sp as the hdc, sl st next st, end off.

 

WINGS

Make 2 using clear bags

1) Ch 7, 2 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next 3 ch, 5 hdc in last ch.

Working on opposite side of starting chain, hdc in next 3,

2 hdc in ch2 space. Join. [16 hdc ]

I attached the wings using fishing line. Sew/tack them on at an angle.

 

Eyes

Different ways to do the eyes. You could crochet one inch circles from yellow

yarn and sew them on. I have also used craft foam using a quarter to trace the circle.

Then attached them using the foam like dble tape. I am also trying the sponge rollers, cutting them about 3/8 inch and then using tacky glue, gluing on the wiggly eyes.
