PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.

ASSEMBLE
     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.
     BAGGY...bend the top down to round 7; leaving round 1 - 6 visible. Sew it in place.
     EYES…using black embroidery floss or thread; embroider the eyes in the position you like best by doing french knots.
     MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or thread; embroider the mouth in the position you like best, the possibilities are endless.
     BLUSH...you can use pink felt and make tiny circles or you can use makeup blush and apply some underneath each side of the eyes.
     TEA...using light brown felt or any color of choice create a stripy wave and glue it at the bottom of the baggy.
      LABEL...using pink felt or any color of choice, make a small rectangle. Fold it in half. Grab any color of embroidery floss, cut a strand (any size you desired), place it inside the folded rectangle and glue it close. The other end of the strand, place it on top of the baggy and secure it. Using black embroidery floss, create a line across where you place the strand of the label.
