Assembly
Sew in the tail on your bookworms body and trim it. Use the long tail you left on your bookworms head and sew it onto the body. I use large dressmaking pins to hold the head in place while I sew it to the body. Sew on a mouth and eyebrows. Use thin craft/jewellery making wire to create the glasses. The wire is thin enough to shape the glasses using your hands. Now enjoy your bookworm!

A Note About Comments

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
