Part 4

Note: A full video tutorial for Part 4: Finishing is available!


  1. Sew the head to the shell. (I positioned the head over the rows right above the ridge made in R10 of the shell.)

  2. Sew each of the flippers to the shell. (I positioned them right underneath the ridge made in R10 of the shell.)

  3. If desired, sew details to the shell or add embellishments like bows, flowers, beads, etc.

Congratulations on finishing!
