Assembly:

  • Pin and sew the muzzle to the head as shown, stuffing it before you finish. Pin the nose and the heart in the positions shown and sew on flat. Use the bottom of the head to anchor your button eyes and sew them on as shown.

  • Make sure to sew the ears on in a wide ‘C’ shape with the opening facing front of the face. This helps to give the ears a nice floppy look.

  • Pin the opening of the body piece to the bottom of the head and sew around. Stuff the body before you are finished sewing.

  • Here is an example in the first picture of one stuffed leg and one unstuffed. To help position the legs, allow the long side of the leg opening to run along a round of the body as shown. Pin the legs to the body and take a good look at them to make sure they’re even before you sew. Do the same for the arms. Stuff each piece before finishing.

  • For Round 8 of the legs, you should have worked in the back stitches only. This resulted in a visible ring along the stitches. Position the foot pads and toe pads inside of this ring and sew them on. There should be 1 foot pad and 4 toe pads per foot.

  • Now flip your puppy over and pin/sew the tail on the backside, positioned between the legs.

  •  Using the same color yarn as the arms, stitch on three lines to the ends of the arms and pull them tight to create the appearance of paws.

  • Done!
