Assembling

Eyes: After you’ve finished crocheting all pieces, 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.

Legs: 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.

Nose: Embroider the nose with a Gold thread centered under the eyes. To do this, pull the thread horizontally several times from one stitch through the next, skipping one stitch. Repeat until a thick nose forms.

Hair: Sew the finished hair on the head with a Sun colored thread. Make sure that the short strands of hair are in front over the eyes.

Wings: Sew the wings right and left to the back of the body, closely behind the arms.

Feelers: Sew the feelers right and left above the eyes onto the head. Hide the remaining thread in Maya’s head.

DONE!
