Hi,

I’m currently working on bear #6. This is my first bear that’s completely my own design. My past two bears have had the same problem as this one ... a wonky face. It’s driving me mad, making it impossible to place eyes and ears.
I’ve tried re-stuffing but I still have the same issue, the gusset seams aren’t level. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. Any thoughts or solutions please?! X

Thread sculpting can help remedy that sort of problem. Do you have a long doll needle?

Yes I have a doll needle I’ve never attempted it before, not sure how to go about it.

Here's some photo-tutorials to help get you started.

Fortunately it's a very forgiving technique. If you screw up, you can just cut the thread and start over!
