  • Place safety eyes between round 9/10 of the body.
  • Fold ears so they are flat, stitch the seam together and stitch to the body, use the photos as a guide for positioning the ears to the body.
  • Do not stuff the arms, fold them so they are flat and stitch between Round 13/14 of the body.
  • Stuff the legs before stitching, pin them in place and stitch around the outside of the leg, firmly securing them to the body of the bear.
