That little black speck next to one of the buttons is just a stray piece of fuzz from the fabric I used as the scarf.  I didn't notice it until I after I took the picture.  And The spot on the left side of the bulb is just a shadow from his arm.

The instructions can be found at:

I thought so too.  Next time I'd add a little more color.  The instructions use toothpicks for arms and the nose, but I didn't have any so I chose sticks instead.  They also draw the eyes on with a black marker...but I had these tiny little baby buttons I used in place of the marker.  Baby socks would work a lot better than the girls' size 8 ones that fit my daughter's huge feet...but since I had her lonely little one that's been sitting in a sack with no mate for 6 months, I decided I'd just use that one...and had to sew it down a little to get it to fit snugly.
