I have a completed cross stitch that my husband wants to make into a clock. The center mechanism goes right through some stitching and the mechanism is about 1/4 inch in diameter. He wants a hole added to put the mechanism through. What can I do to protect the stitching around the hole so it doesn t ravel? Thanks -- Ellie from Minneapolis MN USA
- You can use an iron on interfacing or one of those fusible web products (the name escapes me). Either would seal the back of the piece so the stitching won't ravel. -- Pauline from Barnegat, NJ -- Nov 17
