To complete your little "creation" you'll need to first stuff his head and then his body. Sew his body to his head with crochet yarn. Sew on all four arms and legs with crochet yarn. Sew on his ears with crochet yarn. Make sure he looks extremely loveable by giving him a great personality with some eyes and an embroidered nose and mouth. Add a little button heart if you can find one. Don't send him out into the world empty handed. Give him a little bouquet of flowers for his sweetie or maybe a box of choccies.

Enjoy!
