FINISHING
Sew Front and Back tog leaving an opening at side to insert stuffing. Stuff firmly. Sew opening closed, leaving a small hole to insert ends of twisted cord.

Twisted Cord
Cut two 6 yard [5.5 m] lengths each of MC and A. Taking all strands tog hold one end and with someone holding other end, twist strands to the right until they begin to curl. Cont until cord is tightly twisted. Fold the 2 ends tog and tie in a knot so the cord will not unravel. The strands will now twist themselves tog.
Sew twisted cord along seam. Secure ends in hole.
