Hi fellow teddy makers, I have a problem with some of my Teddy arms in that they turn out and make Teddy look like like he is shrugging ...the last one was so pronounced I had to pull them in at the inner elbow with a tight knotted thread. It seems to happen most when I use a pattern with one piece arms. Any suggestion as to what I,m doing wrong please.

I had trouble with that too. Putting a dart in the underside of the wrist and some hash marks to line it up better helped keep them straight. If I don't do that they "twist" outwards.
