ASSEMBLYLay the hat across the top of the face along the 4th row and sew into place. Take an 18 inch length of white yarn on the yarn needle and make 5 long stitches on each side of the face just below the hat for her hair.
Loop a piece of yarn or ribbon through top, behind the hat, for hanger, secure.
Insert tea light in center of magic ring, using the yarn tail, weave tail around last round, tightening to fit snugly around base of tea light, make sure on/off button is still operational. Weave in all ends.
Using the picture as a guide, glue on the wiggle eyes, use the pink paint to paint on cheeks and use some of the
red 3D paint to make a mouth. To add a little decoration, sew or glue a button or flower to the hat.
