Before sewing all of the pieces for Dollie together, I suggest pinning them in place with sewing pins. This will make sure Dollie is symmetrical and will also let you see what your Dolphin will look like!

I did not stuff the tail or the fins as I found it didn’t need it.

I have not used safety eyes for Dollie. This is because all of my crochet designs are used by children under the age of three. This does not mean that you can not place safety eyes into your crochet pieces! Instead I use black yarn to make the eyes and mouth.

I would LOVE to see a picture of your finished Dolphin! Please comment a picture or send a photo!
