Assembling

Legs: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, start sewing the legs onto the body. Start sewing the first leg onto the body directly over the edge that was created by the round that was crocheted only into the back loop. 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.

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

Tail: Cut two Signal Red coloured and Sun coloured threads to the same length.

Then with the help of a tapestry needle pull one end of the thread from the inside to the outside through the tip of the tail. In this way one end of the thread emerges from the tip, while the other end remains at the opening of the tail.

Now knot together the ends of the threads that come out of at the opening of the tail. Cut off the threads just behind the knot and pull it into the tail.

Then sew the tail centered onto the back of the body. The lower end of the tail should be sewn to the stitch edge. After the tail is sewn on, the threads emerging from the tail are shortened, unraveled and set up like a flame.

Claws: Use a White thread to create the claws on the legs at 3 locations per foot as shown in the pictures. To do this, wrap the thread 3 to 4 times around a loop that was created by crocheting the legs only in the back loop. Hide the remaining thread inside the foot.

DONE!
