And the main work is done! We just now have to add the eyes, the facial features and to do a final sewing!

 




 

First, you need to decide where to place the eyes but do not attach them yet! Fold your circle in two to make things easier.  Then, with your tapestry needle and the black yarn, make two eyelashes for each eye (see pictures below for help). Then, place and attach the eyes.

Now make a mouth!

And with some light pink yarn, make the cheeks.

Now we will have to attach the keyring on the top left, fold the watermelon in two and sew it with green yarn to close it (see pictures below).
