    • Weave the thread and needle through the limb and then into the body to attach.

    • Pull the thread tightly to bring two pieces together, closing the hole. This creates an overcast stitch to secure the effected area.

    • Don't pull on the thread too tightly or this will break the thread and overlap the stitching.

    • Cut the excess thread, leaving at least 4 inches to allow you to tie a double knot. This will close the seam.
