Assembling
Sew on the ears. Sew the arms on rounds 14-16. Sew the legs on rounds 23-26.
Sew the tail in the center of the back approximately on round 25.
Embroider the nose on round so, the length of the nose is 2 stitches.
Sew on the eyes between rounds g and so. The distance between the points where you sew the eyes is 7 stitches. To make the process of sewing easier you may enlarge the holes where the eyes are sewn with the help of tapestry needle or reverse hook end. First match the holes in the body with the holes of the iris. Then sew the eyes over the iris.
Fix the iris with some stitches around. Embroider the whiskers.
