Completion:

Sew on the head on the body, fix the eyes. Insert one of the two magnets into the pink nose and then sew it to the head. Cut off three equal lengths of the nylon thread, insert it under the nose with the help of a needle through the head and fix with a little glue. Sew the two fins on the side of the body, if they are to be movable, use a needle as long as possible to pierce through the body and fix both fins on both sides with a thread at one point at the same time. Put the collar around your neck and close the back seam. Sew the segments together for the ball, paying attention to the order of the colors. Before closing the last seam of the segments, stuff the ball with cotton wool. Cut two red felt circles and attach them to the top and bottom of the ball, putting the other magnet underneath one of the two felt circles.
