    Method Resize templates included in the download to make the Humphrey of your choice. Cut all pieces as shown on templates. ŸStitch gussets to main body pieces around legs and belly Ÿ Join main pieces together along top from nose to tail tip. Ÿ Join gussets leaving a 3” gap for stuffing. Stuff and close gap. Join inner and outer ears, then stitch to dog using the photograph as a guide. Sew on beads for eyes using strong thread and pulling fairly tightly to form little hollows around the eyes. I have marked the eye position on the templates, but it’s always a good idea to try out with glass-headed pins first to make sure you’re happy wit h the positioning. Sew on button for nose with and make a few tiny French knots in dark brown or black for whiskers. Ÿ Add claws in dark brown thread. FINISHED!!
