When it comes time to stuff a crochet toy that you've made, you begin to worry that the cotton-like stuffing called for in the pattern is going to poke out between the stitches. A great way to avoid this is to first put the stuffing into some clean nylon hosiery before inserting it into the crocheted item. Try to pick a pair that is close in color to the yarn you used in your project. You can even double up on the hose if you really want to ensure that no stuffing is going to escape.
