You might need to sew a border on the trim of the fabric, depending on the material.

  1. For the paws: 4 circles of 1,5 cm (alternatively take a 10 Euro cent coin as reference),
  2. For the eye spot: 1 oval of 2,2×3,5 cm
  3. For the back spot: 1 circle with a diameter of 7 cm

Finishing:

I knotted the cape to Jimmy Jones and decided not to sew it on. The stains and paws I sewed, alternatively you can glue it.

All parts of Jimmy Jones you can now attach to the body.

The smile I sewed with DMC Natura Lobelia.
