- Use a Thread Color the same color as your pattern and not the background.
- If machine sewing, after tailing off your coil, only cut one thread short. Pull some thread from the spool and then cut with a length of thread attached to your project. Thread through a hand sewing needle. Then hand sew the tail snug and tight to the last coil to help blending in the end point.
- Walmart is a good place to find 3/16" fabric clothesline. It is half the price there than at my local hardware store.
- In a pinch, the top of a glue stick makes a great substitute for a thimble.
