Bring out the needle in the bottom of the body, 2 stitches away from the entry point. Lightly pull both yarn ends and, keeping the yarn tension, tie a knot of both yarn ends. Hide the yarn ends inside the body.

Take a piece of pink yarn and embroider the nose on row 20, centering it between the eyes. The height of the nose – 1sc, the width of the bottom part – 1 sc, top part – 3 sc. Make a line under the nose.
With the same yarn, embroider the eyelashes.

Twist the wire into a heart shape.

Tie a ribbon around the neck.
