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.

HEAD/BODY with black
  Rnd 1: 6sc in magic ring (6)
  Rnd 2: 2sc in each st around (12)
  Rnd 3: sc in next st, 2sc in next st around (18)
  Rnd 4: sc in next 2 sts, 2sc in next st around (24)
  Rnd 5: sc in next 3 sts, 2sc in next st around (30)
  Rnd 6: sc in next 4 sts, 2sc in next st around (36)
  Rnd 7: sc in next 11 sts, 2sc in next st around (39)
  Rnd 8-14: sc in each st around (39)
  Rnd 15: sc in next 11 sts, sc2tog around (36)
  Rnd 16: sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog around (30)
  Rnd 17: sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog around (24)
Start stuffing the head/body moderately firm.
  Rnd 18: sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog around (18)
  Rnd 19: sc in next st, sc2tog around (12)
  Rnd 20: sc2tog around (6)
F/O and leave a tail for closing. Add any bits of stuffing need it to finish shaping the head/body. Weave in the tail through the final round and draw up tight to close. Secure and weave in the ends.

ARMS with black; make 2
  Rnd 1: 5sc in magic ring (5)
  Rnd 2-3: sc in each st around (5)
  Rnd 4: sc2tog, sc in next 3 sts (4)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

     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 am 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.
     FACE...make an oval shape using white felt. DON'T glue it unto the body just yet.
     EYES...Using black felt make 2 small circles for the eyes.
Using purple felt make 2 short triangles (for the top) and 2 longer triangles (for the bottom). Glue in place the eyes and triangles to the oval piece.
Using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider a line between the eye and bottom triangle.
     MOUTH...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider a line for the mouth. Below the mouth create a smaller line with purple embroidery floss or thread.
     ARMS...there is no need to stuff them. Place them between round 11 and 12.
     FACE to the it in the center of the body between the arms.
