How to Remove Pin Holes from Fabric

Pins can sometimes leave behind noticeable holes, especially in finer, denser fabrics. If
you find yourself with this problem, try this to remove them:

Simply press the fabric with your fingers. If this doesn’t work, try placing your fabric on a
flat surface and gently scratching out the holes with your fingernail. If this doesn’t work,
try dampening each pinhole with a tiny bit of water (test first on a scrap of your fabric to
make sure the water won’t damage it), cover you fabric with a press cloth, then press.
