The fabric has come apart on the foot. With crossed fingers I am praying that I dont have to make another  one because I have already jointed it.
Is there any help for my problem? or am I doomed to make another leg? bear_rolleyes
I have already made 4 ears for this little terror. :redface:  Must admit he is cute. bear_grin
Thankyou in advance

Could you possibly try ladder stitching it?

MMMMmmm I'm not too sure if that would work because I have to keep it matched to the other one.
I think that I just may be stalling the inevitable and a new leg and foot or at least a new foot is called for.
I only just finished fixing the broken cotterpin in the arm!!! ggrrhhh bear_grin  bear_grin

Did you do the same to the other foot for consistancy? or did it matter ? was the fur long enough to cover things up?  Where's the piccy?

Common Miss Wendy....inquiring minds and all that....
