Assembly
Nose: pin the nose onto the centre of the head 2
rounds up from the open end of the head. (Dont sew
on yet)
Cheeks: pin the cheeks onto the head either side of
the nose with the bottom of the cheeks level with the
bottom of the nose.
Remove the nose, sew around 3 quarters of the cheek
then push some stuffing under it to raise the cheek,
finish off sewing the cheek on.

Tail: sew the tail onto the body 3 rounds up from the
magic circle on the body and covering 5 rounds of the
body.

Tummy patch: pin the tail end of the tummy patch


onto the underneath of the tail and up to the open
end of the body, sew in place.

Nose: pin the nose back onto the head, 2 rounds up


from the open end of the head, covering 7 rounds of
the head and just touching each cheek, sew in place.
Spikes: flatten each spike, pin the first spike onto the
back of the head in the centre and 3 rounds down
from the magic circle of the head and covering 5
rounds of the head, pin the second and third spikes on
directly behind each other.
All three should fit onto the back of the head ( you
