It might seem like an obvious thing, but getting a high quality finish on your hand or machine embroidery is often overlooked. Trimming away those pesky loose threads brings the care and attention to your piece that it deserves.

Do you ever find though that sometimes you don’t catch the thread right and end up cutting it short, but it is still visible, the stump them unravels leaving you with a little fuzzy patch or fluffy looking section. This can be avoided by using the scissor tweezer combo where you add tension to the loose thread by pulling on it with the scissors so you can make a close, clean cut.

Unfortunately there are no shortcut when it comes to making a good cut with your finishing’s, but given the time one has usually already put into a project by this point, it is worth doing this last part right.
