I need some advice from those who make knitted toys! Ethan has a knitted toy called Sunshine, given to him when he was just 6 months old. Sunshine is well loved, and has needed several transplants (like eyes and mouths), and has needed a patch up here and there where the knitting has come a bit thin. I've just used embroidery floss to patch up the small pieces. It doesn't look that great, but it has done the job and Ethan has been happy. But now the knitting on Sunshine's legs are starting to really to thin out and the stuffing is visible. I didn't want to use embroidery floss on this, as it's too big an area to do any justice. But if I don't do something soon, the knitting will pop, and he'll need some major surgery.
So... any advice from any knitters out there? How do you patch up a knitted toy properly? Is there a way?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance :)
