Before sewing together all of the pieces for Sally, I suggest pinning them in place with sewing pins. This allows you to ensure that your seal will be symmetrical, and will also show you what your seal will look like!

I did not stuff the flippers or tail because I felt as though it did not need it. I have also decided to not use safety eyes as all of my creations are used by children under the age of three. This is why I have included the small amount of black yarn in the materials needed. I would love to see a picture of the seal you have created! Make sure you send through a photo! 😊
Also…. Make sure you watch this space for the Walrus to come…
