****CHEEKS For DORAEMI***

Make 4 (two in white and two in pink)

Designing the Face*

 1. Pop the oval doll’s eyes into the white crochet eye pieces or you can embroider with white yarn.

 2. The white part of the head should be facing towards you.  Make sure the color jog that happened during the color switch is positioned at the bottom of the head.  Stitch the eyes in the center.

 3. Pop in the red crochet brad for the nose.

 4. I used black crochet thread to sew on the whiskers and lips: the nose line should extend from Round 6 (at the bottom of the nose) vertically all the way to Round 5 at the bottom.  You can use a little craft glue to hold the lip perfectly in its place.

**For Doraemi**

1. Sew on the white and pink cheeks.

 Assembly

 1. Stitch head and body together.

 2. Stitch bib or pocket onto the body.

 3. Stitch arms onto the sides of the body.

 4. Stitch on the collar.

 5. Attach the bell.

 6. Stitch on the feet.

 7. End with the tail at the back.
