Step 3: Thread a needle with embroidery thread.

Step 4: Sew the four pipe cleaners to the center of one of the larger circles.

Step 6: Add stuffing and stitch closed.

Step 7: Sew two buttons for eyes onto one of the smaller circles.

Step 8: Sew the two smaller circles almost together, leaving a small space for stuffing.

Step 9: Add a small amount of stuffing and stitch closed.
