ASSEMBLY

Join tail to the bottom of body as shown. Remember there should be a 24” strand left on top to sew head.

Pinch bottom of ears and sew together to create a fold; sew on each side of head just below the tuft of white hair.

With end left on the nose, weave the yarn back up and through the snout to create dimples for the nostrils.  Pull up and sew back in; weave to the other side and do the same pulling taut enough to create dimples.

Sew the legs close across with a whip stitch; attach to body in order to have the body sit without assistance and have the limbs a bit floppy.

With white strand left on the top of body, sew the head. As pictured, sew the head at the black portion just under the white tuft on an angle so the nose points down and in front of the chest.

Attach eyes of choice. I found 1” google eyes looked the best.
