If using Sew-on eyes, stitch them in place on Rnd 8.
Using a yarn needle, and Blue (or Grey), stitch the straps of the coveralls on with long straight stitches. Start at the back, and stitch just over the top of the arm, then down the front, catching the front flap of the coveralls to sew it down. Repeat for other strap, on opposite side.
Using Grey, stitch around eyes, to make goggles.
Using Black, stitch on a mouth. White may be added for teeth, if desired.
Tie random lengths of yarn to top of head for hair, if desired.
Add a keychain to top or back of head, and your Mini-Un charm is complete!
