REMEMBER: attention to detail makes ALL. THE. DIFFERENCE.
Have you ever fretted over your polyester rickrack fraying? Fret no more:
Take frayed end rick rack
clip off nasty frayed end
take butane (grill or cigarette) lighter and burn end until slightly melted (PLEASE NOTE: MOST prepackaged rickrack available in sewing/craft stores is polyester. So please check prior to using this tutorial to make sure that your rickrack is polyester and not cotton)
It will fray no more!
Clean, perfect rickrack edge = attention to detail = superior finish!
I am currently also adding VIDEO tutorials to my website. I have a channel on YouTube and will add video tutorials as often as I can. It is my goal to teach as many people as I can to be proficient and at ease with finishing their cross stitch. I've had great positive feedback about my new video tutorials. Thank you!
PLEASE read through the tutorial(s) several times before striking out and cutting into your stitching project. The old adage: MEASURE TWICE, CUT ONCE is so very important.
Practice makes perfect.
*I am gradually adding DIFFICULTY levels to all tutorials as it has been recommended to me by my readers.
Something that you can do for me: many use me for my tutorials and I see finishes all over the web that are clearly made using them. I give them FREELY for anyone to use at any time because I want to be known for generosity and helping others. However, if you come to use my tutorials, or if you have been sent here by a link to them and enjoy them, please give my name credit and visit me at my personal blog.
Don't you think that is a fair trade?
I do and that is all I ask.
I have lots of stories to tell and ideas to share. Come and visit me, leave a comment or two, it makes me happy!
