ASSEMBLY AND EMBROIDERY:

ARMS:

1. Thread your tapestry needle with light blue-green yarn.

2. Before you sew on the arm, refer to the photos shown earlier. Make sure you squeeze the top of the arm together, as shown in the photo, so that it can move around a little once it’s sewn on. Pin the arm in place.

3. Use a whip stitch and sew through both sides of the arm into the crease between the neck and body.

LEGS / EARS / BULB:

1. Thread your tapestry needle with light blue-green yarn (green yarn when sewing on the bulb) and pin the piece in place as shown in the photos above.

2. Sew on the piece by threading your yarn up through a stitch on the body then directly up into the piece.

3. Thread the yarn through the back of the piece, then come out through the front.

4. Thread the yarn back into the same stitch on the body where you originally came out.

5. Move over to the next stitch and repeat until the it is completely sewn in place.
