Eureka! Pin Back Excess Fabric
This Eureka tip is probably my all-time favorite tiny thing I've picked up over my years of stitching - and I'm pretty sure I copied it from our very own Carina!
When you're working on embroidery in a hoop and the excess fabric is getting annoying, hanging down in your way - just pin in back! Simply fold it up and bring it over to the front, pinning it to a place that won't interfere with your stitching. It's so obvious, I'm sure you must do this already - but I'd never thought of it when I noticed in a photo of Carina's some time ago. Genius! If you find yourself struggling with that excess fabric, you'll be amazed by how much easier this tiny tip makes your stitching progress.
