Add eyes and embroider mouth. Add hair and your done. :-)

Note: Doing the hair you have several techniques you can do, I would suggest looking them up online. I personally take a lid wrap the yarn around it several times and sew the strands together. Then I hot glue the seam in and fold it in half. This keeps the hair from coming out.
