So you probably see where this is going and we are going to do the tail now and it's pretty much exactly like sewing one of the legs or one of the arms. You are just sewing up into a tube. However, one little difference is what some people like to do with the tail is actually bring it to more of a point. Kind of taper the point. So in order to do that you just have to angle that stitch you are making. So in other words I've got it inside out now and I'm going to run that stitch along the seam but then as I get closer to tip I'm going to want to kind of you know, let's see if you can see this. As I get closer to the tip I'm going to want to if I do want to taper the tail I want to kind of start cutting that seam in and kind of doing sort of a long kind of a sort of an obtuse diagonal here. So that rather than the tail being just a straight tube like this it will kind of taper down a little bit and come to a smaller point. You can do that if you want to. You don't have to. I've actually never done one that way so I might try it that way this time. So any way here's a piece for the tail and I'm just going to fold it inside out thread up my needle and sew it up into a little tube and that's what's next.
