Troodons

Darn in loose yarn ends. Fold bag in half, matching top and bottom casing edges. Sew one side seam. Fold over the casing to the WS of the bag and slip stitch in place. Now sew the remaining side seam, ending just below the casing so that an opening is left for the ribbon. Cut a piece of ribbon 21in (53cm) long, thread it through the casing and tie the ends in a knot. Cut out a dinosaur footprint in pink felt using the template. Pin onto the front of bag and stitch in place using the small back stitches (see Finishing Touches page 119). Place Troodons in bag and pull ribbon tight to close.
