Help with embroidery on shirt!

Posted by heteroerectus (My Page) on

Hi everyone,

I am looking for a quick answer to a problem I have run into, and it's tough to find a specific answer online.

I have just bought a really nice shirt with an embroidered logo, but my backpack scratched the threads, and they are starting to come off on the corner of one of the letters. Does anyone know if there's something I can do to protect this from getting any worse?

Thank you for your help!

I'm not exactly sure what's happening without seeing it, but if the thread is fraying you can try using a product called Fray Check (available at JoAnn's, Hancock's and other fabric stores). Just put a tiny dot on the frayed threads and it should stop them from fraying more.
