Step 4: Sew Up the Body
Sew the rest of the body together When you so the last seam make sure to leave lots of extra thread so that you can later invert it
Step 5: Invert the Body
Invert the body so that it is visibly appealing , then put fish tank filter in it to make it full I added a stocking full of beans in the bottom so that it will always sit up Pull the tread to Finnish the seam and the body is almost complete!
