Work on face:
Using the pattern I provide for you at the bottom of the page. Trace the face onto the pink felt and cut out. Repeat with the beard pattern except use white felt. Attach face onto beard; sew entire beard/face onto ornament. Using black embroidery floss, create eyes, using the French knot stitch. (Working from wrong side, draw needle and thread up through desired location on face. Wrap thread around needle twice and insert the needle back through almost the same exact spot. Keep tension on the thread in front and back of fabric as you pull through. Fasten off. Repeat for second eye.)

Pom-pom: Attach pom-pom of your choosing to top of ornament. I have made my own and used store-bought as well.

Hanging loop: Chain 24 (or desired length of chain) Fasten off. Sew both ends into top of ornament, right behind pom-pom, that way the ornament will always face forward.

I am making one right now, it's so cute! Am I missing something or do I not see how to do the arms? Thank you for sharing your adorable pattern(s)!
