Making Up:
Sew in ends around the pale muzzle
Pull up the black tail end at the top of the head, over sew these row ends and leave both pieces of black yarn on the right side.
Oversew the rest of the head row ends.
Turn inside out.
Sew ears to head as in the photo.
Fix on googly eyes and use short tail end to work 2 stitches to form the eyebrows.
Wind the long tail end around your finger, secure the loops with several stitches before snipping to create the tuft of mane.
