FULL VIEW PLEASE.

Some side notes that might help:
+ You can buy the "sandstone" felt sheets at Michaels or Joann fabrics. They also sell the same color felt by the yard at Joann fabrics, but you only need a small amount to make this plush.
+ Using a ram rod makes stuffing the arms & horns of the plush a lot easier. If you don't have one, you can always use an un-sharpened pencil or a chopstick. Something long & thin without too much of a point at the end.
+ Use a light colored thread, like white or tan. Something that blends well with the fabric so it doesn't stand out too much.
+ All of the parts that use a glue gun can actually be done by hand-stitching. I just use the glue gun because it's faster & easier & works just as well.

If you guys have any questions, please let me know. :nod: Part two is here: [link]

I don't have a hot glue gun sadly, so I was wondering, would you recommend a ladder stitch for when you do the tail, or is there a different stitch that would be better for it?

yeah a ladder stitch should work just fine. :)
