Draw thread through the remaining stitches and pull tight
Sew down the row ends of each ball. Add a little toy stuffing to the ball. Sew one end of the twisted cord inside the ball before sealing it up.

A twisted cord is made by taking three pieces of yarn approx. 1 metre long and fastening one end to a static object for example a door handle. Take the other end of the yarn and twist lots of times. Then allow the yarn to fold in half upon itself and it will twist. Knot each end to stop the twist from unravelling. Cut to the length desired. Make a bow from the cord and attach it to the front of the cover.
