Plush artist Plush Mayhem has a great little video on Instagram demonstrating how to close up the stuffing opening on a plush toy with a ladder stitch. If you’re interested in making plushies, definitely give it a watch to get familiar with this essential skill. Even if you don’t make plushies, it’s just satisfying to watch!
The ladder stitch is an important part of sewing plushies. There’s just no getting around having to hand-sew shut the stuffing hole. Why not try it out with one of my free plush patterns?
