  • For the nose you can either make a little felt ball, or you could make a 4st or 5st magic ring and then close it (if you want it to be bigger, make a round with sc and THEN close it)
  • To make the collar you can use ribbon or felt, or just make chain stitches (as long as you want it) and then attached to the neck
