That wasn't what I was asking. I was asking how you got the washers on the eye posts.
I know... Let me try this again - When you make the arm, you put the eye inside at the top, with the post sticking through a stitch to the outside of the arm. Then, when you sew the top of the arm closed, you have a completed arm with a post sticking out the side. The eye part on the inside is wide enough to keep it from pulling through your work. Then, when you make the torso, and you get a little bit past where you want the arms to be (just a couple of rows past, or you'll make things difficult for yourself) you stick the post (sticking out of the arm) into a stitch on the torso, so that the post is now inside the animal's torso, and the arm is against the outside of the torso. Then you simply take the washer and put it onto the post, connecting the arm to the torso. Does that makes sense now?
