Assembly: Sew pie top and pie tin with wrong sides together, placing stitches on the wrong side of pie top between rnd 6 of pie filling and crust and wrong side of pie tin between rows 2 and 3. Before sewing completely around, place small amount of stuffing inside. Finish sewing completely around and tie thread in knot, pulling slightly taut. Weave in ends.
