Glue the brads and white felt in place as the eyes.
Insert the doll’s eyes (used as a nose here) into the snout piece and sew the snout in place.
Sew on the lips.
Sew on the arms, feet, and ears.
Use dark brown yarn to make eyebrows with the backstitch technique.
Glue a small yellow felt circle onto the center of the flower.
Use dark brown eyes shadow to give the eyes some depth and dimension. Apply with the help of a cotton bud.
Dab on some pink blush on the cheeks and the small center of the lips.

While you fill the body with stuffing, start shaping the doll as you would a triangle onigiri (rice ball).

Add eye indentations.

Sew on the snout and lips after gluing on the eyes in place.
