Assembly:
Cut a circle of white felt slightly bigger than the eyes; then place in back of eyes.  Place 8mm eyes in upper front of face.  With yarn needle and brown yarn, embroidery lines going across tail that form diamonds (see picture).  Sew on bill, arms, legs, and tail.  Use your hook to pull the three, black hairs through the top of his head. 

 
Perry the Platypus belongs to his original creators but this pattern belongs to me.
