Materials
Worsted Yarn (I used Drops you #8 in light lilac and grey, as well as old pink for the embroidery). One ball of each color should be enough.
Crochet hook (I used 2.5mm).
Stuffing
Black embroidery thread
Embroidery/tapestry needle
Stitch markers

Note about color changes
When the pattern indicates a color change, it’s important to remember that the yarn change starts one stitch earlier: in the stitch before the color change, insert hook, yarn over and pull loop through stitch using the old color; then yarn over in the new color and pull loop through both loops on hook. The yarn of the color you aren’t using is carried from behind. Color changes are indicated by the new color inside parentheses ().
