What is the best way to seam crocheted fabric? I don't really know how to do it. Anything has to be better than what I am doing!!! LOL :)

Pretty much the same way you sew up knitting.
Mattress stitch, backstitch, whipstitch.
Here's a good, brief tutorial.

I never did crochet. I found it confusing. But it looks fun. Good Luck on your search.

You can also use a crocheted slipstitch or single crochet to piece pieces together. I find that this works really well for motif-based afghans.

I also like to slip stitch crocheted pieces together. Sometimes I'll use single crochet, but it makes a bulkier seam.
