Making up

With right sides together begin to stitch the raspberry filling around the edge of the pie bottom until it fits around the two longest ends. Repeat this for the top of the pie.

Turn the cake so that the right side is facing out. Position the berries on top of the cake and sew into place.

Turn the cake inside out again and sew on the pie crust leaving the top open to add the filling. Turn the cake so that the right sides are facing out and stuff the cake. When the cake is completely full sew the remaining section closed.

Sew in all ends.
