Sew the top opening close; then weave in beads to create ‘ears’ – this is optional!

Glue/sew or embroider on some eyes.

ATTACHING THE MOON TO THE PAGE:
Use pins or stitch markers to pin the bottom part (the straight edge) onto the bottom of the page.

CCW-OUT-IN-SPACE-PART4-009CCW-OUT-IN-SPACE-PART4-010

Position the round part neatly (it should form a bubble – think of the moon as a glove); Sew only the top part (the round part) with whip stitch onto the page.

Then sew ONLY the piece in the center part of the bottom to the page;
this will be RND 1- 3 – see photo for guide.
There should be two openings on the bottom of the moon.
