Subject: Thanks - they're pulled out too far to be able to glue them down but I wasn't sure how to reverse the snag easily. Do you use the hook on the reverse side?

Not crafty but need to try

In reply to: a dm 's message, "You can get a very small crochet hook (also sold as a Knit picker) and pull the threads back in, or you can cover them with white glue (mod podge or Elmers) that will dry clear, pushing the pulls down and trimming the unruly ones. To prevent further damage, cover the area with tulle/netting." on Thursday, August 07, 11:13:19am

I typically use a regular sewing needle to pull the threads through to the back side of the fabric (sometimes I try and satin stitch them if the pull is long enough), then I fray check the heck out of that section. I use tegaderm on particularly snaggy sections like the inner side of the sleeves. (NT)~KrisThursday, August 07, 03:11:05pm
