Before assembling your cuddle fish, stuff the body. Sewing on the bottom piece: using a yarn need and the color of your cuddle fish. Sew the bottom piece on the open hole on the bottom of your fish; there will be a line of stitches to sew into near the tentacles. (since we only used the front loops of the stitch to make our tentacles. Use the “exposed” stitches to crochet into).

Sewing on the ears: using a yarn needle and the color of your cuddle fish, sew the ears between rows 5-7.


Blush (optional): Using a yarn needle and pink yarn, and sew two stitches of blush underneath each eye. You should now have a finished cuddle fish; I hope you enjoyed this pattern.
