Begin by tucking in loose ends on head, body, arms and legs. To attach head to body use a double strand of waxed thread and beginning at bottom of body insert needle through to the neck and through the head and then back down through both pieces (I like to match the "last round" ends together.) Tie off securely at bottom and thread ends back into body making certain they are not visible. Cut off any excess. See picture for reference

To attach legs use a double strand of waxed thread and beginning on side of body insert across and then through side of leg piece and back through leg, through body, through second leg piece and back to starting point on body. Tie off securely and tuck loose ends. See picture for reference.

To attach arms repeat process for attaching legs. See picture for reference.

To attach facial features, choose position for cheeks and nose and sew securely. Position ears and sew on securely. See picture for reference.

To attach tail, position at back and sew on securely. See picture for reference.

Using glass beads for eyes position carefully and sew in place. See picture for reference.

Optional: embroider toes on feet using single strand crochet cotton.
