Assembly!


Assembly is relatively easy; I simply used my hook and a whip stitch to sew everything together. Start with the leaves, sewing them onto the trunk. Then, stuff a small amount of polyfil stuffing into the trunk, and sew that to the sand. Then, sew the sand to the water.


And you're done!
