We had a customer who needed her multi colored sweater to be sewn together. Sewing the seams together wasn't hard at all, but what was a pain in the "you know where" were the oodles of tails of yarn that had to be sewn in first!
This is my theory: when you're cooking do you do all the cooking and then wash the dishes (providing that you are the dishwasher as well)? The easier thing to do is to cook and wash dishes as you go so the chore isn't so much!!
The same thing holds true for your "tails." Sew them in as you go. This way you don't have to do it after you finished stitching your project together!!!
Try it...you'll like it!!!
HAPPY STITCHING, my friends!!
