Before stitching bootie you will want to embellish your bill with black yarn. Then, Fold bootie in half and stitch. Fold down top to make a cuff. Add eyes to the front of the turned down cuff. I used black yarn to embroider 2 french knots but you could sew on 2 black buttons if you prefer.
*Seed Stitch = K1,P1 every other row. P1 K1 every other row
