Materials needed

• Vanilla colored yarn for head. I used Nako Sport Wool ( 25% Wool, 75% Acrylic; 100gr = 120m ).
• Terracotta colored yarn for dress. I used Nako Sport Wool ( 25% Wool, 75% Acrylic; 100gr = 120m ).
• Black yarn for the hair
• Toy stuffing
• Yarn needle
• Stitch holder
• 2 black buttons for eyes
• 3 buttons for fixing the tail
• Zipper for tail
All time İ am working in the round. This help avoids the ugly seams .
