I've made my first waldorf-style doll, and I am pretty pleased with it. I need some suggestions to make the finishing stitches not so visible. I just used some basic stitch (don't even know the name...) to close up the shoulders and to sew the arms to the body, but I'd like to make them look a little more "professional," you know? Neater, I guess. Any suggestions?

Thanks-

My suggestion would be to use embroidery floss in a matching color.  You can use 1 or all 6 strands depending on the effect you want.

Also great for adding hair that has small strands.  So many colors to choose from!

You can do eyes, nose, small details and use it with 3-6 strands for tying around the wrist or ankles or even the bottom of the head.

Good Luck!
