MLP Plushie Tutorial: The Ladder Stitch by MLPPlushies MLP Plushie Tutorial: The Ladder Stitch by MLPPlushies

Okay, so I know that in my poll I said I would upload a tutorial for attaching manes and tails... And I still will! But I just thought that this would be a better tutorial to upload first, because you need to know how to do this in order to attach manes and tails.
Edit: An extension/part 2 of this tutorial can be found here, for attaching manes and tails to plushies using the ladder stitch: [link]

So. :XD: I give you... the ladder stitch, AKA the hidden stitch. This stitch is super important for any plushie maker - I use it often to close up manes and tails, and of course always use it to attach them.

So I hope this tutorial is helpful to you! And please keep an eye out for the second part of this mane & tail series, where I'll be teaching you how to attach manes and tails to the plushie (using the ladder stitch.)

Thanks for looking!

I swear I am the slowest learner of anything ever. I can look at videos and read instructions and still not get something. But reading this and seeing picture by picture helped so much! You are such a gifted artisan and know exactly how to explain what has been a rather hard stitch for me to grasp, being new to sewing as a whole and wanting to try my hand at plushies. Something about the way you worded everything just so (along with a video to follow along XD) allowed me to understand it where I'd felt so lost elsewhere. I cannot express how much I appreciate this post!

Thank you so much for sharing your expertise with everyone! I know I will come back to this and part 2 often to keep things fresh and look forward to reading all of your tutorials and learning more from such an amazing artist! Thank you!!!
