Assembly

Sew the ears to the head. Fold a V shape in the top of the face and sew it to the head. Embroider the face. Sew on the tummy fur. The tummy fur and face should be sewed together at the neck. Sew the claws onto the arms and sew the arms to the body. Sew the claws to the feet and the feet to the body. Use the photos as a guide.

You have now completed your Snorlax, but there’s still lots of work to be done. You better start looking for the 800 pounds of food he needs each day to keep him happy πŸ™‚
