Repairing Snags On Fabric

Hello!

I'm glad you're here!


The question of the day is this -

Does your cat sleep on your guest bed?

Cats tend to love guest bedrooms because they are most often void of people.

I've got no problem with this, except if you don't watch it they can create a huge bed of fur that grows and grows and grows, possibly leaving enough hair to weave into yarn.


And - in my case - a little bit of a problem . . .
 


Either old cat is kneading with a little too much gusto,

or old cat is snagging the pillow sham when she bursts off the scene as soon as young cat enters the space.

Either way, this sham has seen better days but I need it to match the two other shams which are not damaged at all.

Enter the Dritz 618 Snag Nab-It Tool, 2-1/2-Inch


Could I just say that EVERYONE needs one of these.

All it is, is a thick metal needle with a "roughed up" top half.




You just stick the needle into the spot where the snag is.



Then pull the needle through and voila'! The snag is gone.

The thread pulls through the fabric and stays there.

I've used mine for years and it never fails to produce.





Can you believe it is the same pillow sham?

If you don't already have one of these magic tools you can get one by clicking on the amazon link.



And in case you need something to pull through the snags on your sweaters and knits, you can try this - Miles Kimball Snag Repair Tool.



So. Now you have no excuse. 

My mission has been revealed!

All snags must be removed!!! 

Good luck to ya!

Karen, Our cat Zoey used to sleep at the foot of the bed..not at night, just thru the day. ...so I kept an old throw there and I could wash it every week. I still had to shake the cat hair off it. :) Hope you are getting your mojo back. I am trying to find mine too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Never heard of these before, thanks for the heads-up. I have an issue with cat peel-out marks too.

Our dear old kitty decided he'd jump up to sleep on my curtains( on a taffeta like fabric). Needless to say he left some snags on catching himself so he didn't fall down. So happy to have info about ways to fix boo-boo's on fabric. Not using curtains now but will again some day. Always good to know how to fix things not have to buy to replace. We live out in country so visits to get things aren't that often. Love living out in country, makes you think before you hop in car, saves lots of needless trips, money and gas.
Had to write those tools down so I can send for them, know will be using them quite often over the years.
Kitty getting on my curtains taught me not to leave something lying around, need to put it away so certain fella can't grow to love it too much.
Happy weekend
