I measured how far from the top I wanted to start/stop sewing and marked that with double pins. I find that if I don't make it completely and totally obvious for myself, I will sometimes air-headly sew all the way around and have to pull out my stitches...oy
I added a second seam for stability.
Add "Cake" and your finished! I was going to try to get a picture of Sapphira in action with it, but once I showed her how it worked, she ran off into her room to give Cake a nap...there was no stopping her! She was so excited that night that Cake had her own bed and laid her down next to her pillow and gave her a kiss "nigh-nigh". So cute!
So that is how to make Sapphira happy in 5 minutes flat! :)
