Do I have to make a casing to attach an arm or leg?

Attaching Legs or Arms

To make a casing or not. If you are attaching the arms or legs before adding armature or stuffing, it is not necessary to make a casing. Insert the arm or leg into the opening. Apply a small about of white glue to the grove. On the wrong side wrap wire or a strong thread such as dental floss or hand quilting cotton. Turn body right side out. I have found that this will result in less bulk and a neater looking attachment.
