At this point, pin the muzzle to the body in the desired position and identify the spots where you’d like the eyes to be placed (just to give you a reference, I inserted the 1st eye between rnds # 37-38 and the 2nd one between rnds # 48-49). Insert the safety eyes and secure them with the back pieces. Remove the muzzle – it will be sewn later on onto the body once completed.

Sew the right fin between rounds # 24-30, the left one between rounds # 39-44.

If you’d like to add more details to the seal:

· apply some blush to the cheeks using a little make-up brush,

· create the whiskers inserting little strands of nylon thread into the muzzle.
