Don’t stuff hat. Sew hat to the top of Sandy Claws’s head after you add the eye, mouth and nose.

Final Touches for Sandy Claws:
Cut black felt in 2 oval shapes. Sew eyes to front the face with thread. Making sure the eyes are evenly aligned so the booty is in the center back. Use black embroidery floss to add a nose and a cross-stitch mouth to the front of Sandy Claws’s face. Sew hat to the top of Sandy Claws’s head at about Rnd 6. If you would like the hat to stay folded over, use some scrap red yarn and stitch folds in place. 

Add an ornament hook to the top of Sandy Claws to hang on your Christmas tree.
