    Step 12

    fig.l Stuff head and arms and sew doll together.
    * I do not sew up the body and the heads before joining. this is to make sure the ear has enough base so it does not flop around. So make sure you stuff accordingly so it has some strength to hold the head up. Use embroidery floss to stitch a mouth and to sew buttons on.
    ** I am the worlds worst at typing... any problems or errata please contact me asap... I will be happy to walk through any issues you occur.
