Do you just weave in the ends of the embroidery on the wrong side like regular knitting? Or is there another way to fasten off the ends?Thank you so much for the large pics! I am anxious to try embroidery for making personalized Christmas stockings instead of knitting the names in like I am doing now!
You're absolutely right... embroidery does leave a lot of ends, doesn't it? I've never tried weaving in the ends like knitting, what a brilliant idea! Here's something I like to do though...if the piece will be stuffed like a pillow and the backing wont show, I just leave it as is. However, if they will show on the back (like a scarf for example, I like to back the piece with a piece of fleece...not only does it look finished and professional, but it feels lovely against the skin and makes the piece twice as warm!PS the stockings you will be making sound wonderful! Your recipient will be a lucky person indeed! :-)
