Add small piece of plastic canvas so that when stuffed, the hay does not bulge. Stuff and sl st the bottom to the rest of the piece.

In the second row on the top piece and using a different yellow or brown, slst a line around (to imitate baling line on a bale of hay). Slst all the way around, fasten off.

With FL of R1 as RS, sl to 1st wheel side. When you get to the end of the tread, sl st the two tread ends together. Sl st the other wheel side to the other side of the tread. Loosely stuff before you finsh the join.

Joining the wheel to the bed:

In the middle of the bed, sl st the top 5 sl st on the back of the finished wheel to 5 st in the railing. Repeat on the other side.

Axle:

I found it necessary for the stability of the wheel to add an axle under the bed of the trailer. I used an old paintbrush for this. I laid it against the underside of the bed of the trailer and secured it with a row of single crochets in the place where it could reach into both wheels. Then I used my handy dandy glue gun to secure the ends of the “axle” to the wheels.

Towing Line:

With a 2.5” piece of pipe cleaner, make a hook with one end and a loop into which you can crochet with the other:

Into the loop, sl st and ch 20. At the end of the ch, sc in the corner of the short side of the trailer railing. Working in chain, sc into 2nd from hook and next 9. Ch 10 and repeat in the opposite corner. Working in chain, sc into 2nd from hook and across, sl st to last worked sc in ch and sc across to pipe cleaner. Fasten off.
