Do not cut the thread!
Sew a fastener on one half of the circle. Glue the cardboard semicircle on the wrong side.
Take a pair of half – beads or ready - made eyes. Take a piece of white felt and cut out 2 circles to make the whites of the eyes. They should be slightly larger in diam than the beads. Glue the eyes on. Make sure the side of the white felt is showing. Glue the eyes to the other half of the circle.
Embroider a smile. Make some dotted lines and then wrap each stitch around with yarn, (see the pictures). Thus, the smile will be smooth.
Embroider the eyebrows. Embroider seeds with black yarn.
Fold the part in two, work 39 sc by hooking through both edges of the part.
