If you make softies or pillows – or anything else that requires stuffing – you’ll need to sew up the opening by hand. I teach two basic methods for doing that – the easy way and the invisible way. This is the easy way.
I’ve taught it to 5 and 6 year-olds and they do a great job with it. I recommend it for beginners of all ages.
For those of you eager to try out the invisible way, watch How to Ladder Stitch.
