I have no idea but I'm in a moonstitch GB so I was motivated to search the web and it brought me back to Hip Girls.

Sometimes I have to quickly press the freshly sealed crocheted piece (so that it is still warm) to the edge of the grosgrain to be sure it doesn't dangle. If that makes any sense! You have to be careful with the moonstitch, though, it browns faster than the grosgrain. Good Luck!

I try and cut mine from stitch to stitch when doing an angled cut and he seal it there, just be careful because the stitching has caught fire before...
