Take the nose and glue it in place. Then take the two muzzles and glue on each side of the nose, a little below the nose. (See black-footed ferret jar image 11.) Then with a black permanent ink marker, draw the mouth. You can hand-stitch a mouth if you prefer.

Take the lid circle (pattern piece 13) and sew the two paws on (see black-footed ferret jar image 12) with paws facing outward.

Place the ferret head on top of lid piece covering the part where the paws are stitched on. (See black-footed ferret jar image 13.) Pin in place, then hand-stitch the head onto the lid top. Pin the lid rim onto the lid top as seen in photo. (See black-footed ferret jar image 14.) Then sew together. (See black-footed ferret jar image 15.)

Turn the head so that it is right-side out. Heavily glue the top of the lid and the inside rim of the ferret head. Place on the lid and smooth out. Let dry. (See black-footed ferret jar image 16.) If needed, hand-stitch the ear in place (see black-footed ferret jar image 17) and then the paws so they lay flat. (See black-footed ferret jar image 18.)

Sew the tail (pattern piece 3) and turn right side out. Stuff a little batting inside. (See black-footed ferret jar image 19.) Sew the remaining two paws and the tail to the bottom circle (pattern piece 13). (See black-footed ferret jar image 20.) Pin the bottom rim (pattern piece 5) to the bottom circle, then sew pieces together. (See black-footed ferret jar 21.)

Sew the two ends of the bottom rim together. (See black-footed ferret jar image 22.) Turn the bottom section right-side out. (See black-footed ferret jar image 23.) Add a thick amount of glue on the bottom of jar where the ferret bottom will be added. (See black-footed ferret jar image 24.)

Also add some glue to the inside of the bottom ferret rim. (See black-footed ferret jar image 25) Carefully, pull the fabric onto the jar bottom. Smooth the fabric out and let dry. Fill jar with treats or whatever, put lid on. That's it!
