ASSEMBLY
★ Position the parts with bobbin pins and play around with placement before sewing them in place.
★ Use black yarn to embroider a nose onto the muzzle. Stuff the muzzle lightly and center it between
the eyes. Sew the muzzle on neatly and carefully.

★ Position the ears evenly on the sides of the head. I have placed them between rows 5 and 6 starting
from the top.
★ Sew the fore legs to the shoulders and hind legs at the sides. Make sure that the paws are in the right
position. You can sew 1 or 2 stitches from under the hind legs to the body to tack the legs close to the
body if they are flaring out too far.

★ Put the collar around the neck and join using a tapestry needle.
★ Sew the tail on to the back of the body
