Whiskers are optional. If desired, fringe one piece of white yarn into either side of the nose. Work small crochet hook under the stitch. Draw loop through and slip yarn ends through the loop. Pull yarn ends drawing loop closed. Trim to desired length of whiskers.
Starting stitches: hold the end of the yarn on the back side of canvas and work several stitches over the end to anchor it.
Ending or finishing off: weave the yarn end under several previously worked stitches on the backside.
Stitch small color areas first, then backgrounds.
Backstitch facial features last.
