Our template (below)
Cut 2 feet from orange felt. Slip the feet through the paperclip. Sew around the outside of each foot with one strand of embroidery thread. Sew along the bottom at the top of the paperclip so it stays in place.

Put the bodies together sandwiching the top of the feet in between them, and sew around the outside.
