Break off a long length of yarn, thread through remaining sts, pull up tightly and fasten off.
Seam row edges, leaving a gap to turn right side out.  Stuff lightly.  Embroider or swiss darn white spots on top of toadstool.  If needed work a few stitches through the top of the toadstool to pull the stalk up and shape it correctly.
