ASSEMBLY:
Stuff nose lightly. (Tip: I wait to add stuffing until the nose is *almost* completely sewn to the face/head, but there is still an opening to put the stuffing in. This makes it so the stuffing isn't "in the way" while you are sewing the nose in place.)
Sew nose to one of the head pieces and embroider a mouth and eyes, using photo for reference.
Stuff and sew head pieces together.
Sew patch to body, using the photo as a guide. With Poodle Pink yarn, embroider 3 french knots on the triangle. With red yarn, embroider red "stitches" so that they appear to be (aesthetically) holding the patch in place.
Sew head to body.
Sew ears to sides of head with pointier ends facing up and bulkier ends facing down. Use photo for reference.
Sew arms to sides of body, using the photo as a guide.
Sew legs to body, using the photo as a guide.
Tie (or sew) a hot pink bow around the neck. (I did not add the pink bow/ribbon because I do not have that particular supply/material available! Remember to feel free to improvise with materials. For example, if you don't have purple yarn or don't want to buy it, try sewing on a patch of scrap fabric instead.)


4/16/13 (Update): I found a hot pink ribbon, so I took an updated photo. =)

Enjoy!
