Help -- sewing eyes to crochet bear's face
Posted 10 February 2005 - 04:46 PM
I crochetted this cute bear based on the pattern I found from LionBrand's website. However, the bear is currently missing eyes, nose, and mouth because I am not sure how to make them. The pattern just said "Sew eyes to head. For nose, embroider inverted triangle with satin stitches. Embroider mouth with straight stitches"
How am I supposed to sew the eyes to the head? How do I do embroider? What's a satin stitches? :thinking2
Thanks for any inputs/suggestions )

Basically, to attach the pieces, sew them together, trying to hide your stitches. For the nose, sew long stitches in a triangle/fan shape, until the nose area is filled in.
