Embroidery tips: tidying up when you unpick


I had to cut out quite a bit of stitching on my blackwork. Soul destroying when you’ve put so much time in!

And what a mess – all those lose ends and bits of fluff.

My not so secret weapon.. Magic tape:


It has to be this kind of tape, not regular sellotape!


See how easily it clears up the fluff!


I then used a little lasso to pull the ends through and secure them on the back – with blackwork stray threads are going to make a big difference with the finished picture.


Here’s the tidied up area ready to be restitched!

I love comments so don’t be shy, let me know what you think…

  1. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really one thing which
    I feel I’d by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very vast for
    me. I am taking a look forward on your subsequent publish, I’ll try
    to get the dangle of it!
