Step 4 - Iron a 10cm square piece of Heat n Bond to the back of the black craft square; iron a 5cm square of Heat n Bond to the back of the white craft square. Use the stencils to draw the eyes and nose pieces onto the paper side of the Heat n Bond. Cut out the pieces. Remove the paper from the back of each piece and iron in place on the beanie front. Place a 20cm square piece of tearaway stabilizer underneath the beanie front and satin stitch the eyes and nose in place with matching thread.
