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...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 16 and 18; approx 1.25" apart.
     COAT...fold down the beige part. Place the coat on round 12. Find the center between both feet, this is where the opening of the coat will be. You don't want to completely sew it in place, only sew the back loops that where left unworked to the body.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on row 3 of the coat underneath the beige part.
     EARS...if you haven't already, fold the ears in a wave of 3 folds on the wide part and stitch through all the layers with your needle to make the ear shape. Align them to the arms and place them between round 7 and 9.
     EYES...I'm using the rounded domed buttons since I have no crafts stores around my area that sell safety eyes. I'll be placing them between round 8 and 9; approx. 1" apart. Place the accents above and below the eyes.
     NOSE...place in the center of the eyes between round 10 and 11.
     WRINKLES...place them above the eyes.
     OPTIONAL...if you like you can use some makeup blush and a q-tip to add some color to the ears.
