Bo, weave in ends.

Make 2nd panel. When Bo leave a long tail to seam the two sides together.

Lay one side on top of the other, wrong sides facing each other. Seam down one side and across the bottom using the whip stitch. Add a small amount of poly-fil as you seam to top. Fasten off, weave in ends.

When you cast on, leave a tail long enough to attach trunk to tree.
