R9. sc 6 (6)

finish off leaving a long tail for sewing

Step 7: Stuffing

For this step, stuff all of your limbs firmly with poly fil

Step 8: Assembly

For this step, pin all of your limbs accordingly (please see above picture) then take your tapestry needle and sew them together in this order

Legs to body

Arms to body

Tail to body

Head to body

Ears to head

You dont have to follow this order specifically, but I find it to be the easiest.

Tie off all of your yarn ends and hide the tails inside the body.

Step 9: Cheek Circles

For this step, you need to cut out 2 red circles from the felt. these will be used as cheeks. I dont measure the size of the circles, so use your best judgement.

After you cut these out, hot glue, fabric glue, or sew them on to the cheeks of the toy.

Step 10: Back Lines

Finally, using your tapestry needle, embroider two lines in dark brown yarn across the back of the body, just above the tail.

You are now finished with your Pikachu :)
