TIP! You may have to adjust the eye placement depending on yarn and hook size you use.
Stuff the head well. Cut a long piece of yarn and remove the eyes. Place the needle in the hole
where the first eye was and thread the needle into a hole next to the eye hole. Go back and
forth between each eye hole repeating the process from the first eye. Pull slightly on the yarn
after going through each hole. Do this about 3 times on each side until you reach the look you
want. Follow the pictures for help. There is also a youtube video I have for extra help on this
process.

Place the backs of the eyes. You may need to remove some of the stuffing the place the backs
of the eyes on. Follow pictures on the next page for help.
