W/right side up, overlap head onto the body. Match rnd 3 of head with the top of rnd 2 of body. Sew head to body, you might want to remember to sew the back part too, so there is no gap. Weave in your ends when done.

Fasten off & weave in ends.

You will need determine where you want to place your hanger and how you want your button, in the front or back. How I did mine was this: I like the button in front as it’s easier to button. I attached row 1 of hanger to about the middle of rnd 1 of head piece, I then attached my button between rows 8-11.
