Wrap black wool around the base and pierce with the fine needle.
The body is ready. Make other details from the black roving.
Form four paws. To make the same sized paws divide a wool tuft into two equal parts.
Form a cylinder from the first one. Pierce with the fine needle.
Make thicker the lower part of the paw by tacking a bit more roving.
Make other paws in the same way.
Now make a head. Shape a flattened wool ball.
Pierce with the fine needle. Tack a forehead using a small wool tuft.
A neck is a thick cylinder. Join it to the head.
