Using a dark color, sew irises on in upside-down "v" pattern, laying over knits.

Be sure to center and place everything symmetrically, if that's what you want.

Using cream, add sparkles to pupils, to take away the zombie look.

Step 7: Sew Hat

Fold rectangle in half, right sides together.

Starting at bottom, stitch sides together using a ladder stitch. Round off corners to give Froggy's eyes a nice curve.

Wear often!
