Leave the tail of the thread about 20 cm, cut off. Do not close the hole and do not add filler! Otherwise, it will be inconvenient to crochet the side sprigs.

Now go back to the central sprig. Add some hollow fibre. 
Finish the crochet as follows:

43) into the back loops only (skip 1 loop, 1 sc)х 3 times (3)
Fasten off, cut off.



Work sc around the sprigs with dark-green colour yarn. Start with the central one.
Fasten the thread in the middle, work 3 ch. Insert the hook into the half-loop and work: (1 dc, 2 ch)х3 times. Continue anti clockwise in a spiral, work into every half-loop (1 dc, 2 ch)х3 times. See the pictures for guidance.
You may work into every loop  (1 dc, 2 ch)х2 times – control and make it as frequently and dense as you like. 



Work around the side sprigs using the same technique. 


Glue the eyes on. Embroider the smile and eyebrows.
Lightly brown the cheeks.
