Assembly of Crochet Squirtle


Body: Attach the shell to the back of the body. Attach the tail and both legs to the body in such a way that Squirtle is balanced/ able to stand on its own. Attach the arms to either sides of the body.

Add the eyes and facial features as desired- some suggestions include using fabric marker, felt pieces, or needle felting.
