    would think that would make the stitches 2 loose and they would come out
    anyone know how tight do you twist them so the stitches dont fall out ?

    I don't twist it...I use my seam ripper to loosen the thread down to the seam. Where the seam is locks the thread from there to the edge in place. Then I just kindof mash it with my finger and then press the seams on the back all going the same direction in a spiral. I'll post pics, but I don't know how clear they'll be. edited...not very clear on a couple!

    This is where I finished sewing the last seam.

    I mushed it on the back side after I'd picked the thread out
