FIN­ISH­ING & ASSEMBLY

On 2 faces for fronts: With sewing thread and nee­dle, at­tach 2 but­tons to face for eyes.

Us­ing length of or­ange yarn, at­tach nose to face hav­ing point fac­ing up­ward. With black yarn, em­broi­der mouth be­low nose be­tween rnds 6 and 7 us­ing running stitch. Use photo as guide.

To at­tach hats: With length of hat color, at­tach hat cuff of 1 hat (bur­gundy on boy, thyme

on girl) to top of each front face, slightly cov­er­ing hair. In the same man­ner, at­tach hat cuff of 1 match­ing hat to top of each back face. Curve hat cuffs slightly to fit curve of face pieces. St very ends of front and back hat cuff pieces tog, leav­ing top of hat open for pocket. For girl, sew hatband to hat just above cuff. With fab­ric glue, at­tach sun­flower to girl’s hat. For boy, sew patch turned on its end on hat. Us­ing length of Aran, use a st through both thick­nesses to at­tach front and back faces tog; start right be­low hair on left side and con­tinue all the way around to cor­re­spond­ing st on op­po­site side. With slightly warm steam iron and dou­ble thick­ness of cloth be­tween iron and pocket, press bandanna so that it lies flat. Be very care­ful to not get the iron too hot so that it will not flat­ten out the sts. Sew 1 bandanna to the bot­tom of each face.
