Tip of the Moment

This is a cheater's tip. Sometimes when you're using a satin stitch or embroidering and the tension isn't quite right the stupid little bobbin thread likes to rear it's ugly head. To fix this you loosen the tension and viola beautiful sewing. But if you're just doing a little thing, and you don't want to rip it out to resew. Simply take a Sharpie of a matching color and gently color those little threads.

For me it's always the black that wants to show, nothing like a bit of marker to cover it up. It's not perfect, but the stuff I colored a couple of months ago still looks nice and black.
