Assembling

· Fill the head and body with fiber filling.

· Sew the hood to the head and the head to the body.

· Sew the arms on to 3rd rnd counted from the top.

· The wings should be folded so the center inc becomes the outer edge of the wing, and the inner edge should look more ”straight”.

· Attach the wings so the top edge covers the neck and make sure the arms are under the wings.

· Sew the wings together at the bottom.

· Put a little bit of fiber filling in the horns and sew them on to rnd 14 and 15 counted from the back of the head and with 12 sc between them.

· The rose is folded in the middle, right side to right side, and is rolled around itself, so it gets the shape of a rose. Sew it together in the bottom and attach to the side of the hood.

· The nose is sewn on to rnd 17 and 18 counted from the top of the head.

· Embroider the eyes close to the nose.

· Sew the spots to the wings.

· Embroider the stripes to the stomach.
