Note: Seam the piece using the same yarn you made each item of the project with (e.g. with A for eyes). If your yarn is plied, split the plies apart by half and use that to sew with for a neater finish.

Sew Green Pumpkin Top to the top of the Bib with Row 1 of the Pumpkin Top corresponding with the gap of Row 18 of the Lowe Bib.

Sew Inner Eyes to Outer Eyes, using photos as a guide, and attach them to the Bib (over Rows 8 and 10). The right eye should be 1” from the right side of the bib and 1½” away from the left eye. The left eye should be roughly 1” from the left side of the bib.

Sew the nose on in between the eyes roughly 1½” from the bottom of the bib.

With D, either embroider or surface crochet a smile onto the pumpkin between Rows 2 and 3 of the Lower Bib, and working your way up (on the left-hand side of the face) to Row 11.
