Directions for a Four-Ear Humpty
Directions for a Four-Ear Humpty.
Cut two squares of unbleached cotton each 36 inches square; sew around the edges, leaving an opening about 12 inches in one side. Turn and tie each corner firmly in a lug with string, and then proceed to stuff it. This must be done well and packed very tightly. Old rags cut up are very suitable. When stuffing is completed, sew up the opening. Cut another two thirty-six inch squares in moquette or shadowette; sew on three sides; pull over humpty; tie the lugs and sew up by hand.
