Running stitch the tan patch near the eye on the front white piece. Repeat it for the back piece. 4. Running stitch the tan patch to secure the tummy piece on the front and sew the tan curve piece on the back. 5. For the arms sew on the tan pieces as shown on the image above. Repeat it for each arm. Put the right sides together of the arms and sew, leave a hole to turn it inside out. Stuff it. 6. Repeat step 5 for the legs and the tail. 7. For the nose sew on a black piece using a running stitch. Sew on a mouth using back stitch with black thread.

CONGRATULATIONS - You made Cake the Cat.
Stitches used: blanket stitch, running stitch, ladder stitch, back stitch. Tips: Which is the good side? This is the side that you want to show in the final product. Placing the good sides hide the stitches when you turn your plush inside out. Which stitch should I use?*** - Blanket stitch if I am sewing two sides together. - Running stitch (up and down stitch) if I am sewing on eyes, or features such as a mouth. - Ladder stitch if I am closing up the plush after putting stuffing inside. - Back stitch if I am sewing on a mouth. It helps create a continuous line without any gaps inbetween. ***These are my preferences
