How to assemble
 Put a small amount of stuffing into the muzzle then sew it on to the head 12 rounds down from the magic ring. (just below the safety eyes)
 Next sew the ears on to the head two rounds away from the centre, stretch the ear so the edge sits flat to the head.
 Next sew the head on to the body.
 Tie off any loose ends on the arms and legs and pinch the tops to flatten them.
 Using strong sewing thread double up about 30cms on a large sewing needle.
 Put the needle in to the back of the bear and out through the side for the arm, make sure you leave enough thread hanging out of the back.
 Pick up a few stitches on the inside of the arm near the top, and then push the needle through the body and out the other side.
 Pick up a few stitches near the top on the second arm, and then take the needle back through the body and out the back of the body where you started off.
 Pull the threads tight and tie off.
 Then do exactly the same for the legs.
 For the eyes cut two lengths of black wool (yarn) about 20cms.
 Next tie a lose knot, and then wrap the wool (yarn) around again so you end up with two knots.
 Now slowly pull the two ends until the knot has tightened up it should measure about 7-10mm (Don’t pull to hard or the knot will be to small)
 Repeat for the second eye.
 Sew the eyes on just above the muzzle and about 8sts apart by taking the wool (yarn) through the head and out the back. (Make sure the wool (yarn) comes out in the same place at the back don’t tie off yet)
 Pull the wool (yarn) so it creates a little dimple behind the eye but not too tight or the eye will disappear in to the head then tie it off. (before sewing on the buttons on the large bear use a piece of wool (yarn)with no knots in the same way as the little bears eyes, to create the dimple first then sew on the buttons.)
 You can add a small white stitch to the eyes to brighten them up.
 For the nose (use wool (yarn) for the larger bear) use three strands of embroidery thread.
 Starting in the middle just above the magic ring sew one line up then work from the middle out to the right try to keep the stitches even, when you are happy with the amount of stitches sew back over them to the middle then repeat this on the left side.
 For the mouth sew a straight line down from the middle of the nose, and then sew over it again.
 Then sew an upside down v shape for the mouth, and then sew over it again.
 Then take the thread back up to the right hand bottom corner of the nose, make one long stitch across the bottom and the same across the top of the nose to neaten it up.
 Tie off the threads.
 Add a ribbon around his neck.
