ASSEMBLY
   I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have it in the position you like best before sewing.
  Sew the back piece and the side piece together. The slip stich side will be the outside part. Then sew on the front piece. I use the whip stitch technique with fuchsia thread.
  The eyes are placed 1.25" apart between row 3 and 5. Sew them in place with white thread. The nose is sewn with white thread in row 2. Sew the bow on the upper right hand side. Embroidery the whiskers with white thread.
  Tip: you can also use felt for the eyes/nose/whiskers.
  Finally sew on the snap fastener in place. :)
