PATTERN NOTES
  Gauge isn't all that important, but your hook and yarn choices should result in a fairly tight stitch so that the stuffing won't show through.
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.

BODY (using yellow)

ASSEMBLY:
  I highly recommend pinning all the pieces together before sewing anything to make sure you have all the pieces done right and that you get them in the positions you like best before sewing. It seems like alot of extra work, but this will save you ALOT of hassle.
  Nose is sewn a little lower from the centered of the face.
  Place cheeks on the side of the nose giving it a small little gap in between the nose and cheek.  Remember to stuff lightly, to give it a little bump.
  Eyes are constructed from felt. Make the eyes oval shape in black with a small white circle on top. See pictures.
  Shoes/legs are sewn to the bottom of the body as shown in pictures. Experiment with the placement so that you can be sure you're happy with how the shoes/legs look.
  With a light orange felt make small circles and with a light brown make bigger circles than the light orange ones. I use big and small buttons to trace on the felt to get a perfect circle. Place them over the body as you please.
  Make a flower with white, yellow and green felt to be place on top of the head. See picture. A little tip I glue two pieces of white felt together to get the flower a little stiffer. Also did the same with the stem. Then I glue in on top of the face right on the center of the eyes and also sew it.
Hope you enjoy your new plushie.
