This means several things:
- The size of the crochet pieces (approx. 7.5" square, plus a selvage stitch at each side edge) works out with the 8-inch square foam pieces. I'm glad I added those selvage stitches.
- Cutting the foam into the sizes I needed was fast and easy. (I sawed through the foam with a bread knife.)
- The seam turned out easier and better than I expected. It's a simple slip stitch crochet seam. The medium green yarn blends the best.
|Chair cushion pads (they yellowed while in storage with my |
sewing stuff). The bread knife worked great for
cutting the 2-inch foam into 8" x 8" squares.
|Slip stitch seam with wrong sides facing out. |
Ready to be turned right side out, and stuffed with the
four squares of foam.
|Three pieces of foam added so far. One to go. |
It's been pretty easy so far. Will the fourth foam piece
be difficult? It wasn't, really.
Meanwhile I have three out of six body panel completed, and a few of the 24 pieces needed for the feet.
The only thing I still wonder about is the best way to attach the head and feet to the body....
