Cut one 8" length of jew­elry hemp or co­or­di­nat­ing cord and set aside.

Care­fully ap­ply thin layer of glue to the back of each stitched piece and place on card­stock, leav­ing room be­tween each piece and mak­ing sure pieces lie flat. Place a weight on top and al­low glue to dry com­pletely.

When glue is dry, care­fully trim card­stock just be­yond the per­fo­rated pa­per, mak­ing sure to leave a tab at the top of the head to pro­vide a place for hang­ing hole (re­fer to photo).

Re­fer­ring to chart and photo as nec­es­sary, pierce both lay­ers at un­stitched. Us­ing large crewel nee­dle, care­fully poke holes through the cen­ter of each space that was not stitched. With fas­ten­ers, join torso, arms and tail to "belly but­ton" hole at top of hips. To make hanger, fold the cord in half and tie an over­head knot in the loose ends. Slip folded end through the top hang­ing hole. Pull the knot be­tween the two strands and pull snug.
