Ending off a Thread

Do this by weaving the thread back into the bead work, maintaining the tension on the beads in the last row or embellishment so that they remain firmly positioned. Loop back on the thread path as you weave through the structure, and you could even do a half hitch knot around an existing thread in the bead work. This will hold the thread securely. When you are happy that the thread through the last bead or embellishment in your creation will not work its way loose, push the needle to the underside and cut the thread off close to the work with scissors or a thread zapper.
