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 15 and 17; approx 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     MUSTACHE LOOKING THING...place it between round 10 and 13.
     EARS...place the ears on round 3 of the head/body. You will only be sewing the top portion of the ear and leaving the rest unsew.
     TAIL...place it on the back on round 16.
     NOSE...using black felt make a rounded rectangle and place it on the center of the mustache thing.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 circles and another 2 using white felt but make these much smaller. Place the black circles on round 8 and 9; approx. 1" apart. The tiny white circles go on the top of the black circles.

     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 12 and 13.
     HORNS...there's no need to stuff them. Place them in round 6 and 7.
     FACE...using a turquoise felt make a rounded rectangle; approx 1.25"height x 2.25"length. Don't glue it just yet to the body.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 small circles and place them in the position you like best.
     EYEBROWS...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider slanted lines above the eyes.
     MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider the mouth. Make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.
     CHEEKS...you can use pink felt and make tiny circles or you can use makeup blush and apply some on each side of the eyes using a q-tip.
     FACE...glue it onto the body between round 7 and 13.
     HAIR on top of his HEAD...first find the center of the head. With white yarn, you'll want to cut 4" strands; approx. 8 strands. We'll be placing the strands evenly between round 2 through 6. Fold a strand in half and pass it through and pull through a loop, pull tight. Repeat with the remaining strands. Now that we have added all the strands of hair to the head, using a comb or wire brush and start combing every strand of hair. This would make it look like fur. Trim to the desired length. Finally, style it to your liking.
     MUSTACHE...add 4 strands below the face to give him a little mustache. Repeat the same process as above.
