Us­ing the stitch guides on page 92, and re­fer­ring to the im­age, add the em­broi­dered de­tails. Use two strands of aqua thread and make five French knots on the bot­tom right flower, add straight stitches to the top flower on the neck gar­land and a cross stitch to the bot­tom flower. Us­ing two strands of pink thread make a cross stitch on the top right flower, a French knot on the mid­dle flower, and straight stitches to the ears and mid­dle flower on the neck. Use two strands of yel­low thread and add straight stitches and a French knot on the re­main­ing flow­ers.

Fol­low the dot­ted lines to cut around the tiger back and front and the hang­ing loop.

Put the front and back tiger pieces right sides (RS) to­gether and pin in place.

Sew around the edges with two strands of or­ange thread and a 0.5cm ( ") seam, leav­ing a gap at the top for the loop.

Trim the edges and care­fully cut notches into the cor­ners and curved ar­eas. Turn RS out and, us­ing a thin paint brush han­dle, push out the ears, legs and tail then add the stuff­ing, push­ing small pieces into the legs and head first. Do not over­stuff.

Sew the gap closed us­ing the or­ange thread, adding the loop and keyring to fin­ish.
