Assemble Green Toy
1. Mark Pattern A slit cutting line on right side of a green felt A circle. Layer green felt A circles with wrong sides together and edges aligned.
2. Fold a 3"-long assorted ribbon or rickrack piece in half with wrong side inside to make a loop. Tuck raw ends of loop at least 3/8" inside layered A circles (Diagram 1). Pin loop in place.
3. Repeat to pin 12 loops total between layered A circles. Using short machine straight stitches, sew through all layers 1/4" from edges of A circles (Diagram 2).
4. Carefully cut along slit cutting line on marked green felt A circle only; do not cut through unmarked circle. Stuff firmly with fiberfill through opening, using the eraser end of a pencil to push filling against edges. Whipstitch opening closed.
5. Referring to Diagram 3, arrange pink felt B star over opening seam; pin in place. Using pink thread, tack-stitch around edges of star to complete green toy. To tack-stitch, pull needle up at A (Tack Stitch Diagram). Push it down at B, and bring it up at C. Continue in same manner around entire shape.
