You Probably Know This Already

Good Morning!

The daunting tangle of unruly ends...never fear!

Unruly ends tidied up

Part down the middle, so they are heading in the direction they would head off in ... if they did.

I do one side first, just tucking them in neatly, following themselves.

If you encounter and especially short one, weave in the needle first ...

Half woven in

... and then thread it afterward.


when the end is too short

Don't clip the ends too close or they'll pop out the public side.

ta-da!

Ta da!
