Fasten off leaving long end for sewing nose onto the head later.

Put some stuffing to the nose. With embroidery needle and brown thread sew on the triangle on top of the nose. Make one strait line from the bottom point of the nose downwards (two stitches will do fine) and from bottom of that line make two lines on each side (pointing sideways). When done, place the nose between the eyes so the tip of the nose makes parallel line with he eyes. There should be one stitch in between each eye and the nose. For more details look at one of the photos of WheeWhee.

 

 

Heart Design:

Using pink yarn and 2 mm crochet hook

 

In magic circle crochet: 3DC, 3HDC, ch 1, 1 DC, ch1, 3HDC, 3DC, SS to magic circle

Tighten the circle to form the shape of the heart.

Tie off leaving long end for sewing the heart on the body.

 

 

Assembling the parts:

First sew on the body to the head.

Then sew on the ears placing them on sides of the head.

Now place and sew arms and legs (arms on sides of the body, right below the head and arms on the very bottom of the body)

At the end sew on the heart on WheeWhee’s chest put on some flower or bow or anything you like to decorate her head, don’t forget her cheeks!!!

Your WheeWhee is done!

 

Hope you enjoyed making it!
