Making Up
Sew up row ends.  Use black yarn for eyes and smiley mouth and a yellow pompom for the nose. Take a look at the picture for guidance.
Hands: To make up you will have 8 fingers fold in half right side out, and put 2 fingers together all the way along you will now have 4 fingers doubled. Over sew all up side and round the fingers and down other side. Sew on the sides of main hat. Take a look at picture if you’re not sure.
Hat: Cut a strip of black felt for brim.
  Sew row ends together stuff lightly and sew bottom up. Sew a couple of sts through the black felt brim then sew to the hat as seen in picture.
