I really like to make stuffies and such, but whenever I stuff something, I can't make a nice clean seam where I stuffed it.
How do you make it look like it wasn't hand sewn from the outside?
Thank you!

Kovurr is an idea, but someday it will be real.

I will try and explain how I did it.Fold and pinch fabric along seamline-I use my fingernail to make the crease.Then I anchor the thread and bring it up through the crease line-its now on the outside-then I catch the opposite side with a tiny stitch and push the needle down through the foldline then bring it up abt 2mm then catch the opp.side.Its like going from side to side but only the tiny stitch is on the outside the rest is under the fold.I hope it helps.I am not good at explaining stuff

I also suggest using the technique Suzibead mentioned. the stitch is called a ladder stitch, and here's a nifty little tutorial I found for it: http://quilttaffy.blogspot.com/2008/07/invisible-closing-seam-tutorial.html
I hope that helps! Smiley
