Making Up:
Body: Sew up row ends inside out then turn right side out. Add 2 black circles of felt for eyes a red pompom for the nose and a black yarn smiley mouth.
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 and top, stuff lightly and sew up bottom. Sew a couple of sts through the black felt brim then sew to the hat as seen in picture.  Add a flower. I used a flower button in white and yellow thread to sew it to the stem. Then sew to the hat. Take a look at the picture for guidance.
