I used this image as a guide on how to create the eyes (click to enlarge). You can add any type of eyes you like.
1. Trace one eye (or draw it) onto a piece of paper.


2. Use the paper as a template and trace it onto black felt. Cut two eyes out of the felt.

3. Place the eyes where you’d like to see them on the head. Using black thread and a sewing needle, sew the eyes in place.

1. Using black embroidery floss, Create a smile that is as wide as his eyes.
2. Add random straight stitches across the smile.

3. Add two stitches like this / \ to create the nose.
4. Tie off, hide all of your ends inside the head and cut any loose ends.

Et voilà! You’re all done.
