Using “OK To Wash It” Fabric GlueUsing OK To Wash It fabric glue is great for securing loose ends. How many times have you had your ends come loose, changing the look of your finished garments? This glue is especially helpful when you are using slippery cord or yarn that splits easily. Just pull the loose end and put a tiny drop on the yarn with your fingers, placing glue on the part that will be hidden "inside" the stitches. Let go of the loose end, and it will pull itself back into the stitch where it will not show. Try not to get too much glue on the yarn, so it will not seep through.
You may not need to use this tip to secure your loose ends on a finished project, when the work is tightly woven. But sometimes when you purposely use a much larger hook and your work is loose, open or lacy, there's just not much you can to to make sure the ends you have woven in don't come out. That's why I use this fabric glue to secure the ends many times. My good friend and fellow designer, Annette Stewart, taught me this trick a few years ago and I don't know how I ever went without it! It's a must when your work is loose and open. You can buy it at any major fabric or craft store, such as Jo-Anns Fabric and Crafts.
