Some Hand Sewing Stitches for Teddy
I found some stuffing at Joann Fabrics that I am pleased with. It's called Silky Soft and is marketed by Fairfield. T1 doesn't feel lumpy at all, and I was a little worried about that happening, with it being fabric rather than fur.
Pull on the thread to tighten the knot down to the surface of the fabric.
This is the best knot I have ever learned for sewing, and can be used any time you need to anchor the thread. I use it for sewing on buttons, hemming, embroidery, smocking, tacking, etc. The tail can be nipped off quite short, because the knot will NOT come undone! With a single strand of regular sewing thread, the knot is very small. Try it--you will never go back to anchoring thread your old way.
