|More Stuffed Animal Sewing Tips:
To create a nice, sharp corner in a very deep angle that will be turned (like those found on a shirt collar, but in this
case, possibly a stuffed animal ear!) sew a squared-off corner instead of a pointy corner. Doing this will actually give
you a sharper corner once your item is turned.
To do this, stop stitching a little more than 5/8" (or whatever your seam allowance is) from the edge of your fabric.
Leave your needle down in your fabric, lift your presser foot, and pivot your fabric 45 degrees. Place your presser foot
down and sew one or two stitches. Leave your needle down in your fabric, lift your presser foot again, and pivot your
fabric until the next fabric edge is against the seam guide. Put your presser foot down and continue sewing.
When sewing around a curve (such as the tip of a stuffed animal paw, the top of a stuffed animal ear, or the
circumference of a stuffed animal head), try switching to a smaller stitch length, which can help you sew the curve
And just a word of caution: If you’re making a stuffed animal intended for a baby or toddler, don't add any buttons or
embellishments that could accidentally come off and become a choking hazard.
