Step 1: Begin with the head by drawing a large semi-circle with two "C"-shaped lines, one on either side. At the top, add two trianfles, each with a bunch of zig-zags for fur on the outer edge of the triangle for ears.

Step 2: Draw the face. Add two large dark circles with white spaces inside. Add a dark upside down dark triangle between the eyes, with two curved lines coming out from the bottom of it.

Step 3: Draw the hands. This can be done by drawing two ovals on either end of the bottom of the head with a semi-circle connecting them. At the bottom of the semi-circles add a small oval.
