HOW TO REMOVE UNWANTED STITCHES

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again...

I'm sure you've heard of that saying before. Well, it totally applies to sewing too. No matter how slowly and carefully you sew, once in a while the stitches will be off. In this case, just grab your seam ripper and try again.

Removing stitches improperly can result in stretched and distorted seams or worse, holes in your fabric. Remember to take it slow and be careful, especially with delicate fabrics.

Try this method out. It really makes removing unwanted stitches a breeze.

HOW TO:

1. Place the pointy end of the seam ripper under a stitch and cut through it with the blade (the curved area). Repeat every 3 to 4 stitches or so.

2. Flip your fabric over and carefully pull out the bobbin thread.

3. Now pull out the short cut threads. They should come out easily. You can use a tweezer to pull them out if they're super short.

That's it!
