note: to put the body together: use a tapestry needle and a scrap of yarn to sew the two sides of the body together, but about an inch before you finish sewing it up, stuff the body. then you can finish sewing it up. to make the face: cut a piece of peach felt that looks kind of like a heart with a flat bottom instead of a point. the eyes and nose are all ovals cot out of black felt. you should sew the eyes and nose in place on the peach piece of felt first. and then sew the peach piece of felt into place on mickey’s body. (when making Minnie  the only difference would be that you would embroider two eyelashes on the corner of the eyes)
