Sewing the puppy together is causing me MUCH stress. I've just watched an amazing "YouTube" demonstrating matress stitch.
The instructions "TO MAKE UP" were written by someone who was obviously on his/her last bottle of ink.
here it is:
DO NOT PRESS. Join should seams. Placing centre of sleeve to shoulder seam, sew sleeves evenly between coloured threads. Join side and sleeve seams. Fold hood in half and join back seam. Sew hood in position, easing any extra fullness across back neck if necessary and placing shaped front edges to front neck, as pictured.
