• Glue pink brads onto cheeks.

Assembly

4. Stitch feet onto the bottom front of body, with one overlapping the tummy.
5. Stitch bow onto the top center of tummy.
6. Position hat on top-right corner of head. Unfold corners. Using the white tail end, stitch hat in place, making sure the stitches fall only on the protruding part of the hat (to make seams invisible). Curl up hat corners when you’re done sewing.
