  2. Using a needle darner, sew the mouth into place with pink cotton thread down each side.
  3. Cut a semi circle of yellow felt to fit inside the mouth and glue into place. Add a tongue cut out of red felt as shown.
  4. Cut out two nostrils from fuchsia pink foam and glue on the top of the sock at the front, for the nose.
  5. Glue two small pink pom poms on top and affix a googly eye on each.
  6. Cut two pieces of grey chenille stem for the eyebrows and glue into place above the eyes.
  7. Group three pink feathers together and glue into place on the front of the heel of the sock.
  8. Cut out a crown from the remaining yellow felt and affix into place in front of the pink feathers.
  9. Finish by gluing three pom poms down the back of the sock.
