 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.

SPECIAL STITCHES
3 Chain Picot Stitch - ch3, insert hook into the 3rd chain from hook, y/o & draw up the yarn through all the loops.

ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
     TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     EYES...I used safety eyes. If you have no craft stores around your area that sell safety eyes you can use doomed buttons or black felt. Placement for them is between rounds 9 and 10; approx. 5 stitches apart (1").
     WINGS...find the center on the back of the head/body and place the wings between rounds 8 and 13.
     EARS...flatten the ears out there's no need to stuff them. The increased part will be facing towards the outside. Place ears between rounds 3 and 7.
     FEET...lightly stuff them. The hdc section will be facing towards the outside. Place between rounds 15 and 17.
     MOUTH & FANGS…using black embroidery floss, embroider a mouth and with white the fangs.
