Assembly

 

Add stuffing to the body and sew it to the base of the head.

Sew the nose to the tip of the head.

Fold the ears flat and sew either side of the head, a few stitches above the eyes.

Sew the paws to the base of the body, if you want to add a bit of stuffing or some wire pipe cleaners into the legs – the pup can be sitting or standing.

Sew the tail to the back of the body to finish the pup.

To finish the hat make a colourful pom pom out of Yarn C and D and sew to the top. You can then fold up the rim of the hat and sew to the pup’s head, or leave it loose.

Wrap the scarf around the neck to finish the toy!
