Final Notes
• Using a yarn needle and the remaining yarn, pinch the top of the arms together and sew each
arm together. Decide upon the placement of the arms on the body, and using a length of remaining yarn, sew the arms to the body.
•Sew the body to the head, going around until you’re comfortable with the security of the stitching,when you’ve used up most of the yarn, finish by by inserting the needle through the neck and pulling it out the other side then doing that again and tugging tightly while you snip the remaining yarn as closely as you can get to the neck, move the head around a bit and the end will work it’s way back into the body.
•Using the red embroidery floss, embroider the mouth onto her face. Using the black embroidery
floss, embroider the eyes onto her face. Also, use the chain stitch and yarn to embroider a border around the face to hide the color changes, and when you’re finished, fasten it off and weave in the remaining yarn.
