Making Up
Sew side seam and top of hat inside out. Turn right side out. Add 2 circles of black felt for eyes and a black yarn smile.
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. Push the top of the hat inwards a little bit to get shape and put a stitch in to secure.  Take a look at picture to see what I mean. Put a couple of stitches through the black felt brim then sew to the hat as seen in picture.
