ASSEMBLE
    I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
    TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     CRATERS on HEAD/BODY...place them wherever you like but be sure to leave a space open to add the facial features.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 circles. Place them on round 6 and 7; approx. 0.75" apart.
     MOUTH...using black thread or embroidery floss make its mouth between round 8 and 9; right in the center of the eyes. You can play around with it and make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.
     SKULL & BONES...using white felt make a skull and bones. Place them right beneath the mouth.

GLOSSARY:
sc: single crochet || st/s: stitch/es || sc2tog: single crochet 2 stitches together || rnd: round || f/o: finish off
