Now sew all the parts together, making sure to stuff the arms, legs, and tail as firm as you want.  

 

I made the tail curl simply by folding over the top of the tail, and sewing that in place with extra yarn and the tapestry needle. 


For the eyes I cut out the felt, and simply glued it on with a glue gun.  


Have fun making him!  If you have issues, feel free to ask in the comments and I'll get back to you asap (I'm trying to check in on them more often)

  1. Is the tail rows missing asterics? like "Sc 3, inc. X 4"

    Also body - "Sc 9, inc. X 3"

    2. I think x2 was missing for the last few steps of the tail too! How do you make the tail curl at the tip?

    4. You're totally correct. Also to make the tail curl I just fold it over and sew it in place!
