Jacket: Wrap the side of the jacket with the 15 stitches around the neck and with the opening to the front around the body and sew the jacket to the body with an Black colored thread.

Arms: Sew the arms left and right onto the body, 1 stitch row under the “neck”. Do not sew the arms directly over the legs but slightly behind the legs.

Eyes: Attach the safety eyes after the 7th stitch row counting from the top center of the head. The eyes are 4 stitches apart from each other.

Brow Ridges: Pull a thread of each brow ridge through the stitch in the 1st upper row of each eye socket closest to the nose. From there, pull the second thread through a stitch 3 stitches left or right from the first pulled through thread. Knot the threads together on the inside, but not too tightly, otherwise the skull will be distorted. Cut the remaining threads just before the knot.

Teeth: Use a tapestry needle to pull a black thread through 4 points on the underside of the skull, as shown in the pictures.

Then knot the two ends of the threads together and cut the ends directly at the knot.

Move the knots to the inside of the skull so that they are no longer visible from the outside.

Finally, pull the skull onto the head of the skeleton. If necessary, it can also be sewn on.

Stick: Sew the stick with a Black colored thread to the right or left hand of the baron.

Hat: Place the hat on the head of the baron. If necessary, it can also be sewn on.
