1.- Embroider the eyelids with a yarn of the same color as the head. Give 2 turns over the safety eye. Then embroider with white yarn a line under the safety eye.
2.- Sew on the head (part 1) the head (part 2). To do this, count from the top the head (part 1) until the Rnd.14 (it will be Rnd. under the eyes). Once there, count 13 / 14sc wide and centered with eyes. Use that base to match the top of the head (part 2). Place it between Rnd.14 and 25 and sew.
3.- Sew the nostrils between Rnds. 5 and 6 (counting from the seam under the eyes of part 2 of the head).
4.- Sew the ears to the head between Rnds.6 and 7 (counting from the top). Fold the ears a little at the time of sewing them to give them a longer shape.
5.- Glue the felt ears inside the crochet ears and glue the felt nostrils inside the crochet nostrils.
6.- Sew the legs to the body between the Rnds.5 to 7 (counting from the bottom).
7.- Sew the arms to the body between Rnds. 5 to 6 (counting from the top).
8.- Join the head (assembled) centered to body sewing the openings of head and body together.
9.- Sew the tail to the body looking to the side between the Rnds.7 to 9 (counting from the bottom).
NOTE 1: To make the assembly, always follow the instructions and the images. It will be much easier to understand the steps.
NOTE 2: If you don’t want to glue the pieces of felt, you can sew them as an alternative!
