ASSEMBLING
· Embroider eyebrows on the head diagonally above the eyes.
· Pin the shell to the back but wait to sew it on until later. The arms and legs are going to be
attached hidden under the shell and therefore you will need to be able to move the shell up and
down from the turtle’s back.
· Sew the spots onto the shell as shown in the picture, sew only in the outermost layer of the shell.
· Sew the arm onto the body on round 32, be careful to hide the top of the arm under the shell.
Approx. 3 of the rounds should lie diagonally under the shell.
· Sew the legs onto the body on round 56, and again hide approx. 3 rounds under the shell and
sew them on positioned a bit diagonally.
· Sew the straps onto each side of the shell, at the top as well as at the bottom, and then sew the
shell onto the back of the turtle, all the way around the edge without sewing through arms and
legs.
· Sew on the football under the arm.

Enjoy!
