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 a 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.
     EARS...there's no need to stuff them, simply flatten them out. Place them between round 5 and 6.
     STRIPES on BODY...on my plushie, I completely forgot about this 'til I had already sewn in everything but luckily I was able to add it. Using fuchsia (or a darker shade of pink) thread or embroidery floss add the stripes between each round from the light raspberry section like in the picture below.
     FEET...try to find the position you like best. I place mine between round 17 and 18; approx. 1/2" apart. Only sew the 2 last rows from the feet (the flat area) to the body.
     ARMS...there's no need to stuff them. Align them with the feet and ears; place them on round 12 and 13.
     SNOUT...stuff it lightly. Find the center of the front of the head/body and place it between round 9 and 11. The section where we did the 3sc goes up.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 circles. Place the black circles on round 8 of the head/body; approx. 0.75" apart.
     EYEBROWS...using black thread or embroidery floss, embroider them just right above the eyes on round 5 to 6. You can make these however you like, but I simply made a slanted line.
