i wanted to show people who may not know how to do this simple method of sewing a hole closed so the thread doesn't show. so i made a little tutorial. i hope it is clear enough. please let me know if there is anything that is unclear.

Thanks a lot for this.  This was something I knew once but would not have thought of.  The little felt monster that I just finished tonight thanks you wholeheartedly.  Grin

I never thought of doing the knot that way -- I always backtack and then run the thread through the stuffed animal a million times.  Your way is much better!  Thank you so much for posting this.

Great tutorial! I already knew how to make the blind stitch, but your tutorial helped clarify certain things (like hiding the knot at the end) Your instructions were very cute and easy to understand. Loved it!

might i add, if you're doing a pillow, it's awfully helpful to push the thread through the middle of the pillow(without losing it!) pulling thread tight, and trimming it so when you release it it goes into the stuffing of the pillow.

yeah that's all.
