Tutorial: How to machine stitch horns onto heads!Here's another quick and simple tutorial!
When you make your gusset pattern, leave a little hole where you want the horn to be.
Pin the horn to the gusset hole. They should be the same length.
Now match the back of the horn together and pin.
Sew from the end of the gusset to the tip of the horn.
Now you have a horn that's machine stitched to the gusset!
Tutorial: How to hide knotsHere's a quickie tutorial I put together on how to effectively hide knots and make your closed seams pretty!
Tuck in your seam allowance.
Use a ladder stitch to close the seam. When you tug the thread the stitches disappear!
When you finish closing your seam knot your thread and place the needle into the same place your thread came out.
Push the needle through to the other side and gently tug the thread until you hear the knot pop through. You've successfully hidden your knot!
If you're using minky, take a needle and carefully brush the fur out of the seam. When you're finished you should have a nice pretty seam that's barely visible!
Tutorial: How to machine stitch heads onto bodiesTutorial time! This is another basic tutorial that will show you how to machine stitch a plush's head onto its body. Please be aware that I can't teach anyone how to make patterns. I'm just putting together a few tips and tricks that will hopefully help someone.
Sew your plush's body together, leaving the entire back open.
Sew your plush's head together, also leaving the back open.
Match the head to the body and pin. When making your pattern, make sure the circumference of the opening at the bottom of the head is equal to the circumference of the neck opening of the plush body.
Sew a straight line from one end to the other.
The plush's head is now attached!
You should now have a plush with the entire back open! All you have to do now is finish it!
