I know that if there is a seam available, one could sew the ears onto the stuffed animal in the seam. How would I sew them without a seam/any stiching showing if I DON'T have a seam available to sew them into?

I'm more of a visual learner, so if you know of any good visual tutorials on how to sew features onto a stuffed animal, that would be great...

Thanks in advance!

This is something I do all the time. I find that the ear looks more real if it's sewn on separately. You can look at my tutorial in the sewing forum for the hidden stitch for the basics of the stitch. What you'll want to do is sew one side and the other. When you tie off your thread, bury the tail deep in the stuffy, and it will stay tied better. You do this by exiting the thread away from the point of entry and pull hard and clip.
