Alternative Method #1 For Blanket Stitch Finishing Each Piece Along The Edges

Additional Supplies Needed - Warm and Natural or Batting, and Color Coordinating DMC Embroidery Floss For Each Piece

1)  Cut the two pieces along the dotted lines.
2)  Using the front doll piece as a guide cut two pieces out of warm and natural or batting.
3)  Place the two doll pieces wrong sides together and then insert  the warm and natural or batting pieces in between the two pieces and pin along the sides to hold.
4)  Trim the edges so the pieces and warm and natural or batting  outer edges are even.
5)  Blanket stitch  1/8” - 1/4” away from outer edges with 6 strands of color coordinating DMC embroidery floss.
6)  Add a hanger to the top of the piece with 6 strands of color coordinating DMC embroidery floss.
