1. Cut out felt pieces using the patterns provided as a guide – one pink mouth piece, two large brown ear pieces and two small blue ear pieces.

2. Turn the sock inside out and mark in the dotted lines with chalk. Sew the sock together along the nose dotted line. Cut along the mouth dotted line.

3. Open out the cut edges and sew a loose running stitch around the opening. Do not secure the end when you have finished.

4. Fold the mouth piece in half wrong sides together. Place in the opening with the fold at point A – the opening is bigger than the mouth piece.

5. To make the opening smaller, pull the loose end of the stitching so the opening gathers. Stop when the same size as the mouth piece. Secure end and even out gathers.

6. Sew the mouth piece into the opening using small, neat running stitches. Secure the end and then turn the sock the right way out.

7. Glue small pieces of wool around the edges of one side of a brown ear piece. Place a blue ear piece over the top and sew or glue them together. Repeat with the other ear pieces, then sew one on either side of the sick near the heel (use the pattern as a guide)

8. With contrasting wool, stitch nostrils – use large stitches, one on top of the other. Stitch on beads for eyes. Glue some brown wool around the mouth
