I originally had this posted to my plush DA account, but I realized this might be of use to you all as well! I've shown this technique here on plush, but it can also be used for things like pawpads on fursuits. It's how I got this pair of paws so nice and neat looking: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/9213593/
If you have any questions, try the tutorial first and I'd be happy to answer any questions if you still don't "get" it after practicing a little. You do need to be able to sew comfortably on a sewing machine to get this to work.
Hope it helps!
