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.
     FEET...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 14 and 16; approx 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     HORNS…lightly stuff them. As you can see the horns curl in a bit, you'll want the curl part to be inward. Place them between round 6 and 8 of the body.
     TAIL...if you haven't already, stuff it lightly. Find the center of the back of the body and place it between round 14 and 16. You'll want the part that we did the increases to be facing down.
     SPIKES...it goes along the back from the tip of the tail to round 6 of the body.
     EYEBROWS...using turquoise felt make 2 small rounded rectangles. Place them slightly tilted between round 6 and 8.
     EYES...you'll need to make 4 circles out of felt.
Using white felt make 2 circles with a diameter of 1.75cm.
Using light blue felt make 2 circles with a diameter of 1.4cm.
Using black felt make 2 circles with a diameter of 1cm. Make 2 more with white; make these as tiny as possible. Glue them together like in the picture below and place the eyes between round 8 and 10 of the head/body; approx. 0.50" apart.
     NOSE...using turquoise felt, make a small half circle and place it between the middle of the eyes on round 11 or in the position you like best.
     SMILE...using black embroidery floss or thread, embroider a smile however you like the possibilities are endless. You can also make the smile by surface slip stitching.
     SPOTS...using the lavender yarn, embroider spots around the body wherever you like them to be.
