MAKING UP

Lightly stuff the body, head and legs. Using the yarn tails attached to the separate pieces and mattress stitch, stitch the teddy together. Using the embroidery thread and backstitch, stitch on the facial details. Stitch on the seed beads for the eyes and tie the ribbon into a bow around the teddy’s neck. Trim any excess. Push any remaining yarn tails through the body, and trim.
