Assembly
Head and Body

Start by attaching the head to the body. Line the


head and body up, use pins if needed to secure,
and whip-stitch the pieces together. As you
stitch up the gap, you may need to add more
stuffing. Do so as needed.

Ears and Face

Next, stitch the ears to the top of the head. Do


not stuff the ears, leave them flat. You may
attach them at a slight angle if you wish.

Cut two eye-shaped half-moon pieces out of


golden-yellow felt. Once you have the eyes
shaped to your liking, use black fabric paint to
paint on the pupils. Let the black dry before
painting a white spot inside of the black pupils. Let dry.

Cut a small triangle out of white felt for the nose.

Using a needle and thread and/or fabric glue, attach the eyes to the face. Attach the nose.
If using glue, you may want to pin the pieces onto the face and let them dry before
handling.

Legs, Arms, and Tail

The arms and legs are skinny and do not need to be stuffed. I find its best to attach the
legs in a sitting position so that Pete can sit nicely on a desk. Its up to you if you want him
to sit or stand! Once the legs are attached, then attach the arms to the sides of the body.

Stitch the tail to the back of the body.
