Assembling
Body:
Take some fiberfill and stuff the body tight to make it become firm.
Head:
The head must point downwards a little. It can be helpful to pin the head to the body first.
Sew through the stitches of the body and then through the head. And finally, stuff some extra fiberfill into the neck before closing it completely to avoid a wobbly head. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Horns:
Stuff a bit of fiberfill into the horns. Sew the horns onto Dirk’s head. Place the horns about 10 rounds above the eyes with about 12 stitches in between. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Ears:
Fold the ears in half and sew them together through 3 sts to make the ear become flat in one side. Now, sew it onto Dirk’s head. Place the ears about 2 rounds behind the horns, and 4 sts further out to each side than the horns. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Legs:
Stuff fiberfill into the legs. Stuff the bottom of the leg well and a little less in the actual leg.
Leave a small space at the top without stuffing. Place the legs under the tummy. They should point outward a bit. Sew the legs on about 8 rounds from the beginning of the body. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Tip: you can also crochet the legs together the same way as the spikes before sewing them onto the body.
Arms:
Stuff the arms with fiberfill. Stuff the bottom of the arm well and a little less in the actual arm.
Leave a small space at the top without stuffing. Sew the arms on about 2 rounds from the top of the neck. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Tip: you can also crochet the arms together the same way as the spikes before sewing them onto the body.
Tummy:
Sew the tummy on at the center of Dirk’s body. Sew through the front loop only. Be careful to keep the tummy flat while sewing it on to avoid that it bulges out. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Tip: Sew on the arms and legs before sewing on the tummy, this will make it easier to place the tummy nicely.
Spikes:
Sew the first three spikes onto the head. Place one between the ears, one in the middle of the back head and the last one at the bottom of the head.
Place the next two spikes evenly on the body and sew them on. And finally, sew the last spike onto the tail. Weave in ends thoroughly.
Tail:
Sew the tail onto the back of the body. Stuff the tail firmly with fiberfill. Pin the tail to the body before sewing it on to make sure that Dirk can keep his balance and sit by himself. Weave in ends thoroughly.

Enjoy!
