Note- If you are thinking, one ear side is bigger than the other one, I answer, yes! When you sew them,
the ear will curl slightly and will have a more "natural" look.

Place ear rounds together with wrong sides facing inward and right sides facing outward and sew all around, except bottom of ear.
Leave that open to insert into toy, to give more strength to the ear.
Sew eyes in place using leftover tails. Thread needle with a bit of Black and embroider 2 dots for nostrils in top center of muzzle, between eyes. Fasten off.
Make a Black dot in center of each eye. Fasten off. Still with Black, embroider eyebrows on top of eyes. Fasten off.
Stuff body. Sew top of body using leftover tails. Fasten off. Weave in ends. Attach ears as seen in photos, pin down and sew in place.
Fasten off. Weave in tials.
Done!
