Sew on the second leg 4 to 5 stitches left or right from the first leg, again just over the edge.

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. Back to the crochet pattern.

Muzzle: Sew the muzzle centered under the eyes onto the head.

Ears: Sew the ears 3 to 4 stitches, counting from the middle of the head, onto the head, as shown in the pictures.

Eyebrows: Attach the eyebrows right and left, one stitch row above the eyes, onto the head.

Alternatively, they can also be attached diagonally above the eyes.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a Black thread on the middle of the muzzle. Use a tapestry needle to pull the thread through one stitch and let it come out 2 stitches further, as shown in the pictures. Repeat this several times until a nose is formed.

Tail: Sew the tail centered onto the back, just above the stitch edge.

Teeth: Attach the teeth centered one stitch row under the nose.
