Tapestry Needle
1 Skein each of Light Grey and Dark Grey
9mm Safety Eyes

1.      Ch 22 sts.
2.      Ch 1, Turn, SC 21 sts.
3.      Repeat Step 2 until piece measures approximately 7 inches in length.  Leave a long tail when you finish off for sewing body together.
To Finish: Fold body long-sides together (a.k.a. “hamburger style”) and begin whip stitching across with a tapestry needle. When you get to the last open pocket, thread the yarn
through the body and stitch half way across the pocket. Then, stuff the body loosely with polyfill and finish stitching.

1.      Ch 11 sts.
2.      Ch 1, Turn, SC 10 sts.
3.      Repeat Step two until head piece measures about 4 inches in length.

Leave a long tail and finish off the same way as you did the body. Be sure to put the safety eyes in at some time before you close the piece entirely.
Attaching the head to body:  Whip stitch the head to the body with the tail you left for stitching together the head. Then, thread  the remainder through robot’s body and cut to finish off.

1.      Ch 6 in magic ring (6 sts).
2.      INC in each st around (12 sts).
3-7. SC around. Fasten off, leaving a long tail for attaching arms to body. Stuff arms loosely.
Attaching the arms to body:  With a tapestry needle, whip stitch the arms shut, and then sew arms to body using the same whip stitch method. Use the pictures as a reference.

1.      Ch 9 sts.
2.      Turn, Ch 8 sts. Leave a long tail for attaching antenna to head.
Attaching antenna to head:  With the tapestry needle, thread the tail into the top of the head and come back up through almost right next to where you inserted the needle. Poke the needle through the bottom-most chain of the antenna and push through the head once more. Pull the remainder through to the body and cut.

Cut out a heart shape from a piece of pink-colored felt. Secure to the center of the body using a hot glue gun or an ultra-adhesive tacky glue.

Enjoy your cute new robot!
