Sewing a flat piece to a closed piece

Last week I talked about crocheting and finishing flat pieces. Today I will show how to sew them to a closed piece, depending on whether you want them to stand up, like teddy ears or straight bunny ears, or lay flat against the closed piece, like floppy bunny ears or arms.

 

Straight ears

I you want your flat piece to stand up or stick out, this is how you should sew it to a closed piece.

 

1. Holding the pieces together, bring the yarn up just under the first stitch of the flat piece. Insert the needle through both stitches and draw the yarn through.

2. Go back into the closed piece directly below this stitch, but not into the same hole where you brought the yarn up last time - leave about one stitch between them.

3. Bring the needle back up directly below the next stitch and draw the yarn through.

4. Draw the stitch very tight.

5. Repeat across the opening of the flat piece.

 Floppy ears

But if you want your piece to lay flat against the larger piece, crochet over the opening with single crochet stitches and then sew it on like this.

 

1. Holding the pieces together, bring the yarn up just below the first stitch of the flat piece. Go up through the stitch, inserting the needle under both loops and draw the yarn through.

2. Go back into the same hole and bring the needle up below the next stitch. Draw the stitch tight.

3. Repeat across the top of the flat piece.
