Here are the instructions by

  1. 1
    Step 1
    Cut out all the peices (3 pointy yellow, 3 ovals cream) Also (optional) cute a pink mouth, brown trianges for the stem, and black eyes.
  2. 2
    Step 2
    On one peice of cream, Sew pink mouth peice on (or embroider it) And sew or embroider the eyes. Some face ideas are :D >.< :o XP To sew round eyes, make an X on the area that you are making the eye, then sew in between it to make a sort of circle and fill it in.
  3. 3
    Step 3
    Take 2 peices of the cream felt ovals and turn the good side in towards eachother. Pin them together and start sewing from the top with white embroidery floss. Sew down the side until you are about 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the bottom. Stop and tie it off.
  4. 4
    Step 4
    This part is hard to explain, so look at the picture. Pin the 3rd ovals edge to another ovals edge. Sew from the top to about 1 1/2 to 2 inches from the bottom, same as the last step. Tie it off.

    Step 5
    Now take the last two open edges and sew along them until your 1 1/2 to 2 inches from bottom, tie off.
