  3. Match up the maid’s front and back and stitch them together using a blanket stitch, leaving the bottom open. I also go back and stitch just the front edge of the opening with a blanket stitch to reinforce it but that is totally optional. 12 Days of Christmas Finger Puppets - Day 8 bottom - Felt With Love Designs
