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!

It's nice that you made a tutorial for this. I've been asked this question many times and visuals are always better. This is the one thing that most new plush artists don't know how to do.

Ahhh, ladder stitches are best stitch. ♥

Y'know what part I actually still have difficulty with? Tying the knot itself. :XD: I think I just do a double overhand knot or something (I'm no knot expert, ahaaa), but I'm always really nervous if it's gonna stay.

Cool, that's the technique I use! Except sometimes, I can't stick the knot back into the hole, so the knot is visible and I have to try again XD

Lol, me too. I think it gets caught in the minky sometimes.
