TO MAKE UP
For best results, join seams and sew pieces in place using mattress stitch, working with right side
of knitting uppermost. A one stitch knitted seam turning has been allowed on all pieces to
accommodate this method.

Join front and back body pieces along side seams, then work a gathering thread through every
stitch along base edge, draw up tightly and fasten off. Stuff body firmly through open neck edge.

Fold front edge of head in half and join, then join side edges of head piece, stopping 3cm away
from back edge. Stuff head firmly, join remainder of seam, then work a gathering thread through
every stitch along back edge, draw up tightly and fasten off. With head seam running along
underside, position and sew head to neck edge of body, matching points where White and Hazel
sections meet.

Join side edges on each leg piece, leaving base edge open, then use tweezers to stuff firmly. Join
seam on each foot piece, leaving front edge open, then use tweezers to stuff firmly. With seam at
centre on underside, fold front edge of foot flat and join, then sew a toe piece to front of each foot.
Now position and sew base edge of each leg to a foot, placing at back of foot. Pin legs on body,
placing centre of leg on top of body side seam, then sew securely in position, attaching between
last increase and first decrease rows on body.

With each arm piece, fold front edge of paw in half and join, then join arm seam, stopping at
underarm. Use tweezers to stuff paws firmly and arms lightly, then sew a finger piece to front of
each paw. Position and sew arms to side of body, placing top edge of arm 2 knitted rows down
from neck seam, then, following photograph, bend each arm at elbow and hold in position at this
point with a few stitches.

Join tail seam from gathered tip to body edge, then use tweezers to stuff lightly. Checking that
lemur sits correctly, position and sew tail to back of body.

Sew a lining piece to each ear back along side edges, then fold base edge of lining in half and
oversew. Position and sew ears to head with front in line with white section, and spacing 12 knitted
stitches apart.
Join ends of cast on edge on each eye piece, then pin in position on head, spacing 1 knitted stitch
apart and placing 2 knitted rows up from Black snout. Take a length of Black yarn and draw out a
single strand. Use the remaining 2 strands to sew eyes in place, working backstitch over outside
edge, then embroider a tiny French knot in the centre of each eye.

Finally, use a length of Black yarn to embroider nose with 4 horizontal satin stitches, forming an
inverted triangle shape.
