I'm a newbie and I wanted my first project to be a pin cush ion. I got 3 sides sewed together but I'm stuck after that. How do I stuff it and sew it closed??   Huh

sew most of the fourth side closed.  Turn it inside out (through the part that you didn't sew), stuff (also through that same hole) and then sew the rest of the fourth side closed... the last bit is often hand sewed, but you might be able to do it by machine

For the next time, before you turn something inside out, press the seams flat on the inside to sort of settle the stitches, then press the seam allowance on the part you're going to handsew back the width of the seam allowance. That way, you get an even edge to hand sew together when it's turned right side out.

when you say press you mean to iron right?

Try slipstitching.  I'm really bad at it, so I can't give you pointers, but armed with the name, I'm sure you can find it on google  Wink
