I used dress making pins and pinned the top and the bottom half of the avocado together, then using the long tail of the back of your avocado I sewed them together, sewing through both pieces in the last round. Before you sew your avocado shut completely stuff it firmly as you are working. Trim all ends and weave them in. Sew on a mouth and eyebrows. Enjoy your new little sweet avocado!
