Assembly
Make sure your duck is stuffed firmly, weave in end. Sew the bottom of your webbed feet onto your legs. Then stuff the legs firmly from the top, and sew them onto your duck. Sew on the upper and lower beak onto your duck. Sew on eyebrows. Take about 5 strips of yellow yarn and use the loop method and add them on the top of your ducks head. And if you would like the hair fuzzy you can brush the yarn with a wire brush. Sew the bow onto your duck in front of her hair. Then sew on the wings. Weave in all ends and trim them.
