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, this to remove them:

Simply pressing the fabric with your fingers may be enough to remove the holes. 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.
