4. Cut out pieces 1/4" beyond marked lines for seam allowances, unless otherwise directed. When cutting additional pieces without patterns and when cutting facial features, do not add seam allowances.
5. To assemble, pin pieces together with right sides facing and raw edges even; stitch on marked lines, making 1/4" seams.
6. Clip into seam allowance at curves and trim corners; turn piece to right side.
7. Referring to picture, assemble pieces and trim as directed.
