Assembly:

Tip: I recommend to pin all your parts in place before sewing to ensure everything is aligned>

Making sure you the part of the head where you decreased in row 17 is pointing towards you.
Attach the white parts of the eye across row 15-19 of the head with the spacing of 2 sts in between.

Attach the second part of the eye to the white part, ensuring the top of the eye overlaps the white part ever so slightly. Make sure to align the white parts of the eyes, use the image below for guidance on placement.

Attach the mouth across row 9-11 and the nose across row 11- 14, ensuring the nose overlaps the mouth on row 11.

Attach the pink heart to the top of the white part as per the image.

Attach the ears to rows 22 and 23, leaving a small gap in between them as per the image above.

Attach the head to the body in row 3 of the head.

Attach the legs to the body, the closed seam of the leg should sit across row 8-16 of the body, there should be 14 sts in between the legs on the back in row 8.

Attach the arms to the body, the closing seam of the arms should sit across row 24-29, there should be 12 sts in between the arms on the back in row 24. Make sure the arms sit in a downwards angle.

Attach the tail across row 11-15 of the body.
