Tutorial: How to machine stitch heads onto bodies
Tutorial time! This is another basic tutorial that will show you how to machine stitch a plush's head onto its body. Please be aware that I can't teach anyone how to make patterns. I'm just putting together a few tips and tricks that will hopefully help someone.
Step 1:

Sew your plush's body together, leaving the entire back open.
Step 2:

Sew your plush's head together, also leaving the back open.
Step 3:

Match the head to the body and pin. When making your pattern, make sure the circumference of the opening at the bottom of the head is equal to the circumference of the neck opening of the plush body.
Step 4:

Sew a straight line from one end to the other.
Step 5:

The plush's head is now attached!
Step 6:

You should now have a plush with the entire back open! All you have to do now is finish it!

Tutorial: How to hide knots
Here's a quickie tutorial I put together on how to effectively hide knots and make your closed seams pretty!
Step 1:

Tuck in your seam allowance.
Step 2:

Use a ladder stitch to close the seam. When you tug the thread the stitches disappear!
Step 4:

When you finish closing your seam knot your thread and place the needle into the same place your thread came out.
Step 5:

Push the needle through to the other side and gently tug the thread until you hear the knot pop through. You've successfully hidden your knot!
Step 6:

If you're using minky, take a needle and carefully brush the fur out of the seam. When you're finished you should have a nice pretty seam that's barely visible!

So you want to buy minky
I get asked this question alot and I promised a guide a while back but I'm just now getting around to making it! Here is a list of websites where you can buy minky fabric for your projects! - search cuddle 3 - search for Soft n Comfy - Australia
Land of Oh Etsy -
Ebay links!
Igloo0203 - - This seller has a wide color selection and the minky comes in 3mm and 5mm pile! She's located in Korea and shipping usually takes about 2 weeks, or at least that is when my orders arrive.
KYcutters - - They sell Benartex Minkee Gelat

For everyone who wished me a happy birthday...Thank you soooooooooooo much!! <33333
I'm sorry it took me this long to reply, last week I had to stay off of DA to help my family; needless to say all of your comments really mean a lot to me. ;3; I may not have responded to them, but I always read every single comment. So please don't take it personally if I don't reply...because it's usually my social anxiety that overwhelms me, so it's not anything you did. Now, onto new adventures and pony episodes I go~! *flies away with a cape*

With love,
