The pattern is easy enough for beginners, and the end result would make any anime fan a happy camper!

Assembly

  1. Glue on the triangle nose below Round 8.
  2. For the eyes, count 3 stitches from the nose. Then make one simple diagonal backstitch (with black sewing thread) from the middle of Round 8 to the middle of Round 9. Repeat on the other side.
  3. Glue pink brads onto the cheeks.
  4. Sew 3 arrow tops (with dark grey sewing thread) onto the white tummy.
  5. Sew the white tummy onto the body using a backstitch (this will give a neater effect as compared to the whipstitch method).
  6. Sew on the ears. They should fall below Round 2 of the body, about one-thumb apart.
  7. Sew on the tail at the back of the body. Tada!
