The tail should have the big part facing upward when doing this.
Sew the dorsal fin in the centre of the shark top around 2 rows back from the pectoral fins.

Embroider gills

Cut a piece of black yarn about 20 cm/8 inches.
Just before the front edge of the pectoral fin, embroider 3 vertical lines decreasing by 2 stitches in length toward the mouth that are about a stitch apart from each other.
Entering from bottom of the shark and out point A, enter B (approximately 7 stitches apart) and exit C, (two rows toward the mouth and 1 stitch lower than A) then enter D (approximately five stitches apart) and exit E (two rows toward the mouth, and one stitch down from B) and finally enter F (approximately 3 stitches apart) and out from the bottom of the shark. Fasten off and weave in ends.
