Assembly:

Out of black felt cut out two small circles for eyes and a slightly bigger oval for a mouth. Glue on to make the face on the white piece.

Sew the sides of the letters together, stitch to white piece. Weave in all ends.

I stiffened each piece before sewing together. To keep the pieces from folding over I used pipe cleaners which I hot glued to the back
