PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 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.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

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 16 and 17; approx. 0.50" apart. Only sew the 2 last rows from the feet (the flat area) to the body.
     ARMS...there's no need to stuffed them, simply flattened them. You can place these however you like, the possibilities are endless. If you like to place them like I did...Align them to the feet and place them between round 9 and 12.
     EYES & MOUTH...you can make these however you like, the possibilities are endless. I made them out of felt, use the image below to get an idea on how to make them. Place the eyes between round 7 and 9; approx. 0.75" apart. The mouth goes in the center of the eyes between round 10 and 11.
     CHEEKS...you can use pink felt and make tiny ovals or you can use makeup blush and apply some on each side of the eyes.
