Cut one sock below the heel and fill it up to more or less half, with rice, pebbles, or something heavy. Fill it with a little bit of stuffing, then close the sock using thread and needle. It should measure 5.12 inches.
Now, make the skeins of wool with the same measurement as the base by making 20 turns on a 5.12-inch cardboard. Tie it with a small length of wool, then cut on the opposite. Repeat the process to make a total of 9.
Using hot glue, start gluing 8 skeins one by one along the top part of the base.
Make a new skein 6.3 inches long. Make 70 turns. Depending on the thickness of your wool, they can be more or less turns. Tie it with a piece of wool, then cut on the other end.
Glue the large skein that you just made on top of the other skeins. This will be the ears.
Make the bun by taking half of the yarn from the front to the back. Put a hair tie and trim the ends of the bun. Cut the excess wool on the bottom.
Take the remaining skein that you made earlier and use it to make the snout. Glue it just below the bun.
Glue the black beads for the eyes then a piece of felt for the nose.
Cut her hair a little bit so that it will be prettier. Also, cut the ears and the hair on the muzzle a little.
Glue the bow on the hair tie. Be careful as the hot glue may burn the rubber.
