Finishing:

Shaping arms and legs: Attach the yarn needle to the tail. Sew in and out across the short side of the rectangle. Pull to gather the stitches together. Continuing with the same yarn, hold the arm (or leg) closed and sew down the length of it. Join with sl st. Continue using the same yarn to attach the arms and legs to the body.


Shaping ears: Attach the yarn needle to the tail. Position flat side of ear against the head where you want it. As you sew the ear to the head, gently push both sides together to give the ears a bit of a curve. Repeat for other ear.


Finishing: Sew bottom to bottom of body, leaving a 2” gap for stuffing. Stuff head and body firmly and sew gap closed.
