RND 8: Rep RND 7. Fasten off leave a long enough end to weave in an out of the last round and draw up tight to close. Now weave the ends into work and pull to the inside and trim.
Embroider face on to front working on the 2nd an third row for the smile and on the 5th row for the eyes. Bring the end up through the top center to form a hanger and weave the ends inside the ornament to hide the ends. Secure the hanging lp with a knot inside the ornament.
I decided to flatten the ornament. To do this, just sit on it awhile. Or you can put it between books on a book shelf until Christmas. It should be good and flat by that time if you make it before November 30.
