Sew the eyelids in an arch over the eyes. Press the ears flat. Make sure that the thread end is on the side. Fold one ear at the bottom, open end in the middle to form a leaf shape and sew the ends together. Fold the second ear in the opposite direction so that the shape of the two ears is mirrored. Then sew the ends together. Position both ears at the top of the head.
