Assembly

Sew the irises onto the eye whites. So the insides of the ears onto the ears. Curve the ears slightly and sew them on to the head. Sew the arms, feet, eyes and hair onto the head. Embroider the smile with black wool. I find it helpful to pin everything on before I start sewing to make sure it looks good.
