Fasten off, leaving a long tail for sewing.

Assembly
Using the pictures as a guide, sew ears to head. Sew head to body. Add on arms and feet to appropriate areas. Looking at picture, sew tail to body.
SPECIAL TAIL NOTES: Sew the smallest amount of the top of the tail down, so it looks like it is curling down. Sew that part to the head w/ only one or two sts. The un-stuffed part will be sewn to bottom/back of body.


NOTE: You can make this squirrel any way you want!!! The ears could be made longer, tail bigger, eyes larger, ect. Feel free to be creative! If you have any questions, comments, please PM me. Enjoy!

My daughter had a squirrel report -- and I made this the night before it was due for her to take in. Then I followed it with a lighter-colored version. My kids love them. Here's a link to see them http://www.facebook....d=1306544315686.

Thanks again!
