*NOTE this piece is sewn up so that the end toy has the wrong side (reverse stockinette stitch) side on the outside, so the end toy has a slight wavy look to it*

Cut yarn leaving a long yarn tail. With the wrong side on the outside use the long yarn tail to seam together the row ends up to the cast on stitches. Make sure the reverse stockinette stitch is on the outside and add your safety eyes (with the washer side in the 'right' stokinette stitch side) and stuff the head. Continue to sew the cast on stitches together and shape the ears with few stitches at each side.
