SEWING & MAKING UP

SEW THE HEAD AND BODY

Using the cast-off tail which through remaining stitches and start sewing the side edges  together, using Mattress Stitch to sewing (Sewing form A to B) (Fig. 1). 

Adding stuffing as you sew, stuff them so they are fairly firm but not straining the seams (Fig. 2).

Once you are happy with the shape continue sewing the seams right up to the cast -on edge. 

Then we’ll thread the tapestry needle with this long tail through the loops of the cast-on stitches and pull up tightly (I've used red to illustrate), tie off all the tails together and poke  them inside body to hide. (Fig. 3 - Fig. 9).

Once it is attached, we’ll tie off all the tails together and poke them inside body to hide.

Do the same way with the other ear (Fig. 23).
