Assembly

Sew the handle and spout onto the lamp. Sew the arms onto the genie. Sew on googly eyes and embroider his mouth with black wool. You can add a ponytail by attaching black wool to the head, chain 5, then slip stitch 4 back along the chain. Wrap yellow wool around the ponytail to form his hairband. Sew the genie to the lamp. Coax him inside and place the lid on until you need him 🙂
