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.

Ears: Sew the ears right and left 3 stitch rows from the middle of the head onto the head.

Cheeks: Sew the cheeks to the right and left below the eyes onto the head.

Tail: Sew the tail in the middle of the back of the body as shown in the pictures.

Stripes: Use a tapestry needle and Maroon colored threads to pull two stripes onto the back.

Mouth and Nose: Make a thick knot with a Black thread and pull the two ends of the thread 2 to 3 stitch rows centered under the eyes through the head. This represents the nose. Embroider 1 stitch row below the nose with a Black thread the mouth, using 3 stitches next to each other.
