How do I use hobby fill in toy making?
Well, that depends on what you are doing really, Hand stuffed toys that are poorly stuffed can look a little lumpy, so follow our tips below for perfect stuffing every time.
Use a smaller needle: Use a needle that is slightly smaller than the one recommended on the yarn label, this will make the fabric denser and prevent any stuffing from being shown on the surface of your soft toy.
Shred your stuffing: Before you stuff your bear, shred the lumps of hobby fill into smaller pieces to separate all of the fibres.
Stuff as you go: To make stuffing your soft toy easier, a handy hint is to stuff as you go, joining small sections at the same time will help to ensure that you can get the stuffing into all of the nooks and crannies.
Don’t over or under stuff: One of the most important things to consider is to make sure that you use the right amount of stuffing. Too little, will make the toy go floppy and too much, will stretch your fabric, and your soft toy will become misshaped.
When should I use stuffing pellets?
Use stuffing pellets for stuffing limbs or joints for a more malleable result that maintains its cuddly softness. Place some hobby fill around the outside of the limbs as well, for an authentic result. You can also pop your item into a bowl before adding the stuffing pellets; this will help to catch any spillage and make tidying up a whole lot easier.
