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.
It sounds as if you might be placing the arms too high (too close to the neck).
Maybe try jointing them a bit lower on the torso?
You can also make sure the disks you are using are large enough. If the disks are too small, the top of the arms might tend to puff up when you fill them.
