Ears and face: Cut out two 1 1/2 x 6 inch pieces of muslin and fuse together with fusible webbing. Use this piece to cut out the ears. Glue ears at center to top of wooden head. Using a piece of the embroidery floss make a small bow and glue in front of ear section. Paint face as shown in picture.
Hands and feet: Using remaining muslin cut out hands and feet. With right sides together stitch along stitching lines. Trim seams allowances to 1/8 inch. Turn pieces right sides out. Stuff firmly with small amounts of stufffing.
Finishing: Fold under 1/4 inch of fabric around neck. Starting in center back and using two strands of embroidery floss, make a running stitch around neck close to edge. Leave about 2 inches of the floss on each end to tie. Insert wooden piece into the neck opening and tie floss firmly around neck. Cut loose ends. Repeat same procedure for hand and feet. Hand tack next to stitching to keep hands and feet from pulling out.
