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.
     BEAK...there's no need to stuff it, simply flatten it out. Place it between round 9 and 12.
     FEET...place them between round 17 and 18; approx. 0.75" apart. Don't sew the last row we did on the feet to the body, leave those little toes loose.
     TAIL...if you haven't already, stuff it lightly. Find the center of the back of the body and place it between round 14 and 16. You'll want the part that we did the increases to be facing down.
     ARMS...you can play around with these and place them however you like. What I did, was put his hands (the fingers we created) on his head cause he's suffering from a terrible headache. If you want to put them like I did, place them on round 10 and 12 with the fingers pointing up like if he was touching his head. Only sew half of the arm in place, leaving the rest unsew.
     HAIR...with black yarn cut 2 strands (4" length each). Fold a strand in half and pass it through round 1 and pull through a loop, pull tight. Repeat with the second strand again on round 1. The 2 strands in the middle, tie them in a knot and cut off one of the strands off since he only has 3 little hairs. Trim them to the desired length.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 circles and another 2 using white felt but make these much smaller. Place the black circles on round 7 and 8; approx. 1" apart. The tiny white circles go on the top of the black circles.
     NOSTRILS...using black thread or embroidery floss, make 2 diagonal lines on the beak where we did the hdc's and dc's.
