The Little Yellow Duck Project

Image
Have you heard of The Little Yellow Duck Project?

"The Little Yellow Duck Project is a global initiative highlighting the life-saving random acts of kindness of blood, bone marrow, and organ and tissue donation.

What is the Little Yellow Duck Project?The Little Yellow Duck Project involves people around the world handcrafting little yellow duck gifts as random acts of kindness that are left in public places for others to find. A special tag on each one invites the finder to take their gift home to brighten their day and to visit this website to register where they found their gift. We hope that the stories and information found here will encourage them to pledge their own random act of kindness by registering to donate blood, bone marrow, organs tissues.
I recently heard about this and I couldn't wait a sing…

This is a photo tutorial of how I sew Paw Patrol puppies together. The model is Marshall, but the same steps are taken for every Paw Patrol puppy.
First you will need to start crocheting all the pieces, you can choose to sew each piece after you crochet it, or you can crochet all the pieces and save all the sewing until the end.
Make sure all your pieces are properly stuffed and of course you will need a yarn needle and scissors. First you will want to sew the hole closed on the head.

Sew the back of the body closed.

Next you will want to sew the body to the head, using the beginning tail yarn of the body.
