ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     FEET...lightly stuffed them. Try to find the position you like best. I place mine between round 15 and 17; approx. 1" from each other.
     EARS...there's no need to stuff them, simply flatten them and place them between round 4 and 7.
     TAIL...place it on round 13 right in the center between the back feet.
     SNOUT...using pink felt, make an oval (1.5" lengthwise). Before placing it in place, create the nostrils with a darker shade of thread than the felt snout. Place it between round 11 and 13.
     EYES...using black felt, make 2 small circles. Place them on round 8; approx. 0.75" apart.
     EYEBROWS...using black thread or embroidery floss, embroider them just right above the eyes on round 6. You can make these however you like, but I simply made a slanted line.

  Rnd 15: sc in next st, sc2tog around (12)
  Rnd 16: sc2tog around (6)
F/O and leave a tail for closing. Add any bits of stuffing need it to finish shaping the head/body. Weave in the tail through the final round and draw up tight to close. Secure and weave in the ends.

  Rnd 6: sc in next st, sc2tog around (4)
  Rnd 7-10: sc in each st around (4)
F/O, secure and weave in the ends.

  Rnd 3: 2sc in next st, sc in next st around (6)

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     COSTUME...slide it unto the body. If you like you can sew it in place, leaving the light lavender portion unsew. Round 3 to 15 of the body will be visible in the front of the head/body.
     FEET...try to find the position you like best. I place mine between round 11 and 14 of the custome; approx. 0.25" apart. Only sew the 2 last rows from the feet (the flat area) to the body.
     ARMS...try to find the position you like best. Place them between round 12 and 13 of the costume.
     COSTUME EYES...using a pipe cleaner, fold it as many times needed to fit inside. There’s no need to stuff it since the pipe cleaner will take up all the space inside. Place them between round 9 and 10; approx. 0.75" apart.
     BOO'S HAIR...using brown yarn, embroidery her hair from rnd 3 to 5 of the body. You can also use felt and cut it out the way you want it and glue it in place.
     TEETH for the COSTUME...using white felt create the teeth however you like the possibilities are endless and glue them underneath the light lavender portion of the costume that we left unsew.
     HAIR for the COSTUME...with aran color yarn cut 24 strands (6" length each). Fold a strand in half and pass it through round 9 of the costume and pull through a loop, pull tight. Repeat with the remaining strands again and place them around and in between the costume eyes. Trim them to the desired length.
     COSTUME EYES...using black felt make 2 small circles and place them in the center (round 1) of the eyes.
     EYES & EYELASHES...using black felt make 2 circles. If you have fake lashes glue them in the back of the eyes you created before gluing them to the face. Or you can cut 6 or as many as you would like, 1” strands from black thread. Glue the strands to the back of the eyes that you created. Once you have glue those in place trim the eyelashes to the desire length. Repeat on the other eye. Place the black circles between round 8 and 9 of the head/body; approx. 0.75" apart.
     CHEEKS...using pink felt make 2 tiny circles. Place them in round 9 on each side of the eyes. Or you can use makeup blush and apply some.
      EYEBROWS...using brown thread or embroidery floss, embroider them just right above the eyes on round 7. You can make these however you like, but I simply made a slanted line.
     NOSE...using the aran yarn embroider the nose right on the center of the eyes on round 10.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.

Note: at the end of the color changes it's a bit noticeable, I decided to make that side the front so I can cover those parts with the eye and overall flaps.
     FEET...try to find the position you like best. I place mine between round 17 and 18; approx. 0.50" apart. Only sew the 2 last rows from the feet (the flat area) to the body.
     FLAPS WITH STRAPS...place the front and back flaps between round 13 and 14. Leaving the straps unsew since they'll go over the arms.
     ARMS...there's no need to stuff them. Align them with the feet and place them on round 11 and 12. The straps will go over the arms. I recommend you sew the strap just above the arm so it won't slide down.
     EYES...place the eye or eyes between round 6 and 9 in the position you like best. You'll only be sewing through the white part (round 3), leaving the gray part unsew.
     Using black felt make 2 circles and another 2 using white felt, but make these much smaller. Place the black circles in the center of the brown section of the eyes. The white circles go on the top corner of the black circles.
     HAIR...with black yarn cut 2 strands (4" length each). Fold a strand in half and pass it through round 1 and pull through a loop, pull tight. Repeat with the second strand again on round 1. Trim them to the desired length.
     SMILE...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider a smile however you like the possibilities are endless. You can also make the smile by surface slip stitching.
