fabric to measure 8 x 41 inches. Stack the two fabrics,
one on top of the other. You will work both layers of fabric
as one. Baste both pieces together 1/4-inch from the raw
edges. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise, right sides together,
to form a 4- x 41-inch tube. Using a very short machine
stitch, sew 1/2-inch seams on the raw edge of one short
end, and then along the long raw edge, leaving one 4-inch
end open for filling later.
- Repeat the stitching
using 1/4-inch seams. This helps prevent leakage of the
filling material. Turn right sides out. Use a yard stick
to push all corners out and smooth. Pour kitty litter or
play sand into the tube, leaving 1-inch from your unsewn
end empty. Turn in 1/2-inch of raw edges on end. Top stitch
this seam closed or slip stitch using very small stitches
and then repeating to prevent any leakage.
