 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.

If you’re using safety eyes, set your hook aside and place the safety eyes between round 8 and 9; having 5 stitches in between them (1.125” apart). Don’t add the washers just yet. Stuff the head moderately firm while shaping and see if you’re happy with the placement of the eyes. If you are, remove the stuffing and add the washers to the safety eyes and re-stuff the head. 
If you are not using safety eyes; start stuffing the head moderately firm and keep adding fiberfill as you go along.

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.
     FEET...try to find the position you like best. I place mine between round 17 and 18; approx. 0.50" apart. Only sew the 2 last rows from the feet (the flat area) to the body.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     EARS...there's no need to stuff them, simply flatten them out. Place them on round 4 and 5. Using a q-tip and makeup blush, applied some on the center of the ear like in the picture below. If you don't have any blush, you can also use light pink embroidery floss, thread or yarn.
     FLOWER...sew it in place on either side of the ear.
     TAIL...using a pom-pom maker (size: 1-3/8”) or if you don't have one theirs several ways on how to make them, for example, using cardboard. Be sure to trim it the most that you’re able to so it can be as tiny as possible. Using the ends from the pom-pom, sew it in place on the center back between round 15 and 16.
     NOSE...using light pink embroidery floss, thread or yarn; embroider the nose however you like the possibilities are endless.
