    Start at one end and wrap it around itself tightly. Remember to overlap half the width of the ribbon.
  • 3
    Cut 2 pieces of 3/8" Grosgrain 2-1/2". Roll up one end of each, leaving 1" unrolled. These will be the back legs.
  • 4

    Next, cut four 1-1/4" long pieces of the 3/8" Grosgrain. Fold each of these in half, two to the right and two to the left. These will become the legs. Attach one side of these to the bottom of your body, two on the left side and two on the right.

    Attach the claws to the underside of the body.
  • 9
    Cut two 2-1/2" long pieces of 3/8" Grosgrain. On one end, make a diagonal cut.
