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 have not already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 18 and 19; approx 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 13 and 14.
     EARS...there is no need to stuff them, simply flatten them out. Place them in round 2 and 4. The right ear bend it a bit down, sew it in place.
     COLLAR...place it between round 12 and 13, where the 2 colors meet. You will be leaving 5 stitches in the front.
     FLOWER...place it on the left ear and sew it in place.
     TAIL...find the center of the back of the body and place it between round 16 and 17.
     FACE...using white felt, make a rounded rectangle, and place it between rounds 7 and 11.
     EYES...using black felt, make 2 small rounded rectangles and place them in the position you like best.
     NOSE...using yellow felt, make a rounded rectangle, and place it in the position you like best.
     BLUSH...add a little blush underneath the eyes using makeup blush and a q-tip. Or you can use pink felt.
