How are you going to end a floss thread?
Bring both ends together, folding the length of thread in half. Thread these ends through your needle, leaving a loop at the other end. Push the needle through the fabric from the back, leaving the loop hanging loose. Take the needle to the back of the fabric and pass it through the loop before pulling tight.
