I found this handy guide to hand stitching at Perestroika Designs.

Yes, for some reason, I decided to hand-stitch all the pieces together for this garment rather than using my machine. It’s slow going, I’m using a backstitch to make it durable (I have to go through 2 layers of felt), but it does look really nice. I figure, since I spent so much time knitting the thing, why not take the time to hand-sew as well. I got two shoulder seams and a sleeve sewn in during 4 episodes of Veronica Mars on DVD tonight… I may have been working a little bit slower because of the TV, as is my M.O.

Also while procrastinating researching my sewing project, I found this great project for making mittens out of recycled felt.

    Thanks for the hand sewing link. I love to hand sew. I have a tough time doing zippers on my machine (even using the zipper foot) and like to hand sew them instead. This always works out better for me.
