I could just kick myself for not making a note of it when I saw it, but somewhere on the wide web I think I read someone talking about that best kind of thread to use when sewing spheres in felt to prevent the seams from splitting. I've noticed that the items I've made for DS - felt play food like pears, strawberries, etc. are all splitting at the seams a bit now. Like the embroidery floss has just pulled right through the wool blend felt. I've been using regular cotton floss. Not sure if using polyester would be better, have more give? Maybe I'm just stuffing too tightly? I've tried to look around online but I haven't been able to find anything. Thought I'd ask you talented ladies! Since I'm here so much I'm hoping I read it here, lol!!!
