Placement of eyes

**Using my picture as a guide, position your safety eyes and attach the backings at this point.  Also start stuffing the head.  If you wait until the end, the neck opening will be too small to comfortably stuff the head and it will definitely be too small to attach the backings to the eyes!  The head should be stuffed until it is nice and firm but you do not need to stuff the neck at all.**

ASSEMBLY

You have already stuffed your turtle’s head and body at this point.  Now it is time to attach the two together!  First, sew the neck opening closed.  Using the above pictures as guides, position the head and neck against the body and pin it into place.   You will need to sew the entire back of the neck onto the shell to maintain the upright posture of the head.  If you only sew the bottom of the neck in place, the head will be top-heavy and will just fall forward.

After the head is attached to the body, you are ready to attach the feet.  Pin each foot in place and make sure they are all symmetrical.  One by one, sew each foot to the underside of the shell.  Be patient and neat in making your stitches!  You want everything to come out smooth and nice!
