REMEMBER: attention to detail makes ALL. THE. DIFFERENCE.

Have you ever fretted over your polyester rickrack fraying? Fret no more:

Step 1:
Take frayed end rick rack

Step 2:
clip off nasty frayed end


Step 3:
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)



Step 4:
It will fray no more!

Clean, perfect rickrack edge = attention to detail = superior finish!
