Yes, embroidery can be removed and you need to follow a specific procedure to get the job done. Here are the steps that you need to follow.

  1. As the first step of removing embroidery, you will need to press the fabric. When the needle is passing through the fabric, it will create holes. Once the thread is removed, the fabric would then stay. That’s why you will be able to press the fabric and make appropriate conditions to go ahead with embroidery removal.
  2. Secondly, you need to go ahead and nail the fabric. You will be able to use your fingernails and get the job done efficiently. You don’t need to stick to any expensive tools or special procedures. Or else, you can spoon the fabric as well. You need to pressurize the fabric and then drag it across the weft. While you do that, you will need to warp the fabric as well.
  3. When you keep on following the dragging action, you will be able to manipulate the weft and wrap the threads back in place. However, you are not yet done with the process. You should press with steam as well.
  4. You can simply flip over the fabric and repeat the same on the other side as well. You will be able to use either your nail or spoon across right and left. Then you can follow the same with up and down. After getting the job done, you can simply press it with steam.

Now you will be able to successfully remove embroidery from the fabric. This can provide you with impressive results at the end of the day and you don’t need to worry about anything at all.
