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. Embroider the nose 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 3 hairpieces onto the head, one after the other. Start with the front piece, which you sew in the middle of the head, 3 stitch rows above the eyes.

The other two hairpieces are sewn on directly behind the first one.

Feelers: The feelers are sewn to the right and left next to the hair onto the head. Hide the remaining threads in the head.

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

Eyebrows: Embroider the eyebrows with a Black thread diagonally above the eyes.
