The edge of a piece of cloth which has been cut unevenly may be straightened as follows: Pull out a thread entirely across the uneven edge, starting to draw it at the point where the deepest cut has been made in the edge of the cloth; aline will be formed where the thread is drawn. With a pair of sharp scissors, cut on this line. See Figure 3.
Another method sometimes used is to ravel off the threads on the uneven edge until you come to one thread which runs entirely across the cloth. Trim off the fringe so left on the cloth until the edge is perfectly even.
