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…
