Finishing
Sew all the seam and stuff all the pieces. After that sew pieces together and embroider the face.

You can make different accesories to your baby, I embroider little yellow seed all over her suit and added few leaves on the top of her head. I also knitted a little scarf, making a basic i-cord with dpns.
