Then, unfold it so that you can match the third piece with the pretty side of one of the first two.
It was a little confusing on which way to place the fabric so that the pretty side would end up facing outwards, but I got it. When I was sewing, I left a hole so that I could stuff the ball and make it all cushiony.
I took the piece that I was going to use for the blanket and folded it in half. I cut a small hole in the center where the ball would go.
And I know you're going to LOVE my awesome pictures...ha!
This is me trying to sew the ball and the blanket together. Honestly, I can't think of how to tell you how I accomplished this. That's bad huh?
All in all, this was the first end result.
But then...I thought...she needed something else. She looked more like a ghost than a snuggle buddy. So Moma gave her some wings.
I cut out a butterfly shape, placed the pretty sides together, sewed around the edges, turned it inside out, stuffed it, and finished the edge. I placed it on the blanket and simply sewed down the center.
And there she is!!!
It's not furry and silky soft like the ones in the store...but I made it for her and I'm proud of it.
