ASSEMBLE
    I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
    TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     EARS...there's no need to stuff them, simply flatten them out. Place them on round 4 and 7.
     FEET...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 15 and 17; approx. 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...there's no need to stuff them. Place them just above the feet between round 11 and 12.
     SPROUT...use the surface slip stitch to make the lines on top of the shell with black thread or embroidery floss. They don't need to be perfect; these can be done however you like.
Stuff it moderately firm. Place it over on the back of the body between round 8 and 14.
     EYES...with black felt make 2 circles and with white make 2 smaller circles. Place the black eyes on round 8 and 9; approx 1" apart. Put the white circles above the black eyes.
      SPOTS...using green felt make as many you like in any shape. Glue them around the body.
     MOUTH...using thread or embroidery floss make its mouth on round 10. You can play around with it and make it however you like, the possibilities are endless.

ASSEMBLE
    I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
    TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     TUMMY SPOT...place it between round 10 and 18.
      MOUTH...place it on round 10. It will be overlapping the tummy spot by a bit.
     EARS...place them diagonally from round 4 to 6; approx. 1" apart from round 4.
     SIDE FINS...place them on the bottom part of the tummy spot; the flat side of the fins should be facing outwards.
     BACK FIN...we will be shaping it by doing the following steps:
1. Using black thread, yarn or embroidery floss, insert the needle on the right side in round 6.
2. Go over the tail and pass it through round 6.
Repeat process 1 and 2 on the left side; leaving 3 stitches apart.
Now, place the back fin on round 15 of the head/body. Sew only the 2 flat rows that we created after round 7.
   THE SPOTS on the side of the BODY...using white felt make 4 circles and 2 slightly smaller circles. With a sharpie, you will want to outline each one of them. Try to make the outline as thin as possible. Place them on the side of the head/body like in the picture below.
     FANGS...using white felt, make 2 small triangles. Glue them underneath the mouth like in the picture below.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 circles. With white felt, make 2 slightly smaller circles than the black ones. Place the black circles between round 7 and 8; approx 0.75" apart. The tiny white circles go on top of the black circles.
     NOSTRILS...using black thread or embroidery floss, make 2 diagonal lines in round 9.
