 Make a base out of card

Before filling with wadding put your base in the bottom to give it stability

The two side edges brought together become the back seam , leave a gap half way up so you can pack your wadding nice and firm. Once you have a nice firm head and body close up the gap.

 

Stitch on the arms and feet

When you stitch on the pocket section stitch down to the body to give it the sections ,you will need (depending on how many eggs you have) then stitch it to the bottom of the body.

Stitch the ears in place, use you picture for directions

Fold the feet over so you have one large and one small end. The large end is the front stitch together you can put some card inside this will make it stand better.

Use your picture to arrange the face pieces.

To complete him tie a nice ribbon around his neck.
