    Step 3


    Sew on eyes, nose and (erm, name needed!) line with black wool/ embroidery thread, and mouth with red wool/ embroidery thread. Sew a line down the front of the shirt/waistcoat to show the split in black wool/ embroidery thread.

    Make wings in green felt (or you could skip the coat section entirely and go for purple).
