How to Sew Little Felt Animals
There is something extra appealing about an article that is entirely hand stitched. If you prefer to work by hand than by machine, use whip stitch for the bulk of the work. When whip stitch is done neatly and at the right tension it looks very good on the reverse. I am right-handed and prefer to stitch from left to right, holding the felt firmly between thumb and forefinger close to the raw edges. My early animals were all hand stitched in this way and are still surviving after all this time.
