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!

I'm not a plush maker but I always wondered how on earth you guys get the heads on. Now I know!

I do this too! I prefer it since I feel like it makes a cleaner line than hidden stitching on the head instead.
