Materials and Tools:
maroon, pink felt
scraps of brown, white, and black felt
muslin or other cheap cotton material
paper for pattern
1. Cut an oval shape out of pink for the face. Measure around the oval and divide by two; this will be the width of the rind pieces' straight edge.
2. Cut two identical rind pieces (basically half-circles or half-ovals). Cut two pieces of batting and two pieces of the muslin in the same shape as the rind pieces. Place each piece of batting between a piece of felt and a piece of muslin. Sew together around the edges.
3. Quilt each rind in a diamond pattern. Sew parallel diagonal lines in one direction; then sew diagonal lines slanting the opposite direction to make diamond shapes.
4. Sew the straight edge of each rind to the pink face with right sides together. Sew the curved edges of the rinds together, leaving an opening on one side.
5. Turn right side out and stuff. Sew opening shut using a ladder stitch.
6. Cut a circle of brown felt and a slightly larger circle of white felt. Glue the brown to the white so it looks like a round bone. Glue this to the pink face in the position of one eye.
7. Cut another eye and a mouth out of black felt. Glue into place.
