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.
     BOTTOM MELTED WAX...place it on round 16. Only sew the foundation chains to the head/body, leaving the rest unsew.
     TOP MELTED WAX...place it on the top of the body by matching up the rounds. Sew it completely in place.
     FLAME...the front of the head/body is where the 2 long drips of wax are. Now that we know where the front is, let's place the flame on top of the melted wax on round 1. The center of the flame, place it between round 6 and 9.
     ARMS...there's no need to stuff them. Align them with the flame and place them on round 10.
     EYE...using yellow felt, make an oval shape for the eye. If you recalled the front is where the 2 long drips of wax are. Place it on round 8 and 10; between the long drips and the rounded drip of wax.
     MOUTH...using black thread or embroidery floss make its mouth between round 12 and 13. You can play around with it and make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.
