Wrap yarn 30 times around the cardboard or plastic square. Remove the yarn from the square, tie the bunch in the middle and spread out loops to form puff. Wrap 16 puffs of secondary color. Wrap 36 puffs of main color.
Cut three pieces of wire, each 35 inches long, and bend each wire in half. Place one puff on the wire by threading it from the open end to the bend. Twist the wire behind the puff in order to secure the puff on the wire. Continue threading puffs on the wire, twisting the wire behind each puff.
Second wire (Front Legs):
Third wire (Hind legs):
Clip excess wire and bend the ends into the puffs to avoid possibility of scratching. Separate puffs and place legs in appropriate places over first wire and sew or wind thread to secure in place. Bend wires to shape into dog.
Add eyes, ears, tongue, and ribbon as desired, in keeping with the colors of the dog.

One word...awesome! I love it when the directions are thorough! A couple pics of the body in pieces would have been cool. But what an awesome retro project!
