Sewing pieces together is important for many reasons like when you need to seam the end of a beanie brim or connect a bunch of granny squares for a blanket which is a pretty simple technique.

Sewing Two Flat Pieces Together
For this method you’ll be connecting flat pieces, such as granny squares, together. First make sure that the tail end of one of your pieces is pretty long; if you cut them all too short or already hid the ends, that’s no big deal, you can just use a new strand of yarn instead.
If you did cut the tail of one of the ends, anchor a new strand of yarn down by sewing around the same two beginning seam stitches multiple times to hold the yarn in place, or…
To actually sew pieces together, I usually use a simple whipstitch, meaning wrapping the yarn around and around the stitches. It’s simple and easy, but not always the prettiest finish, especially if you’re using different colors.
There’s also a method called the invisible seam.
Sewing Together Amigurumi
Okay so this will be slightly different. Here we want to add this arm onto the body of our character.
Again, having a long tail will make things slightly easier but not necessary because you can just use an extra strand of yarn instead.
That’s how I sew amigurumi pieces together. Sometimes it can be a little confusing and take a few tries, so be patient.
Stuffing and sewing something closed is a lot easier and more straight forward though, which we’ll be learning next.
