OK, so I have this awesome hemp ring sling that has never been worn because I made it with too small rings. Now that I have the right size, I have ripped out the stitching (luckily only one row of zigzag, I didn't do all 3 b/c I was worried about the ring size.) Since it's hemp and fairly thick, I used a denim needle which caused pretty good-sized needle holes.<br><br>
So my question is:<br>
Do I need to cut off the length where the needle holes are? Will it compromise the strength of the fabric if I leave it? I think it is long enough that the tail won't be too short if I cut it, but it will be shorter than I like.<br><br>
What would you do?

you dont need to cut it, just restitch with the new rings in place, maybe folding under (like a hem) where your original stitch line was. check it periodically for wear, but it should last the lifetime of your sling riding babe.<br>
i would love to see a pic...<br><br>
*edited because my stupid shift key sticks.
