PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.

SPECIAL STITCHES
 Treble Crochet (tr)- Y/O hook twice, insert hook into stitch & pull up a loop (4 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (3 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (2 loops remaining, Y/O hook & pull thru the 2 remaining loops.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     Sew the head to the narrow part of the body.
     Sew the hands on the side and the feet on the bottom side portions.
     With pink yarn or embroidery floss, embroider the spots on the ear by making a line across it.
     With pink felt make an oval for the belly and 2 tiny circles for the feet. Glue them in place and embroider 2 small spots on each foot.
     With black felt, cut little small circles to make the eyes. If you have a hole puncher, use that it makes perfect little eyes. With pink yarn or embroidery floss make a line to make the nose then with black make another line down the center of the nose.
