  1. Pic 62 – Fourth Layer – Lay the internal side of the body (the part that goes against the baby’s skin) wrong side up on top the sandwich. This is the last layer of the inside out sandwich. Now you stitch all the way around the entire edge EXCEPT for the bottom, where the waist will attach. DO NOT SEW THE BOTTOM.

  4. Pic 66 – Mark topstitch lines and topstitch it. I stitch all the way around the edges and around the neck and knee padding, then stitch the shoulder reinforcements (more on that later).
