Cut out paper pattern pieces and draw the body section on to the back of the mohair. Make sure to mark all dots, notches and "leave opens." Cut the footpads out of the same fabric.
Body & Head & Muzzle:
Sew from A to C on both sides of the body and then sew from B to D. Sew muzzle section in at point A and sew down to point B on both sides of the head/body section. Cut a small + on the dots and turn right side out.
Ears & Tail:
Take two earpieces and sew around the curved edge. Do the same for the other ear and the tailpieces. Turn all three right side out and sew each straight edge together using a slipstitch. Leave to one side.
Fold arms in half and sew all the way around, leaving open the place marked. Cut a small + on the dot and turn right side out. Stuff firmly up to where the joint is to be put in and place the joint in. Continue stuffing up and around the joint and then ladderstitch up the opening. Do the same for both arms. Attach to Humm's body through the little + you have made on the body and place the washer on and turn the pins back into neat little curls.
Take and inner and an outer leg piece and sew all the way around, leaving open the places marked. Fit the footpads in and sew carefully all the way around. Cut a small + on the dot and turn right side out. Stuff firmly up to where the joint is to be put in and place the joint in. Continue stuffing up and around the joint and then ladderstitch up the opening. Do the same for both legs. Attach to Humm's body through the little + you have made and place the washer on and turn the pins back into neat little curls.
When arms and legs have been attached stuff the head and nose firmly. Pour a little crushed quartz or glass beads into the tummy and finish off with a small amount of dacron stuffing. Ladderstitch up the back opening. Sew the eyes in just where the muzzle section meets the head and either side of the centre seam. Embroider a nose. Humm is ready to have his ears and tail sewn on. Position the tail for sewing just where Humm's bottom sits on the ground. Ladderstitch the tail on. Ladderstitch the ears on either side of the centre head seam.
