Put the nose between the two tips of the white parts.
The chain for the mouth should have the middle part against the nose.
Sow the white ear part on the brown – Sow them both on the shoulders of the poncho.
Sow the tail on the back of the poncho? make sure the tail doesn’t stick out too much.

Ready!
