Here's a tutorial on how to make the pom pom: http://www.kid-craft-central.com/pom-poms.html

Attach pom pom, ears and mouth to your preference.

Add black buttons for eyes using black thread.

For strings: using 12 long pieces of yarn, fold them in half, put the loop through the bottom of the ear flap, and pull the yarn through the loop. Braid.
