  • Tie a double knot.

  • Working with needles can be dangerous.

Add Comment

  • 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.

Add Comment

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