Your auto-trace may contain unwanted details that aren’t attached to your core custom shape. In which case, convert your Image Trace object to a static, compound path outline by clicking on the Expand button in the Properties or Control panel. Then choose the Ungroup command, Shift-click on the main path to deselect it, and press the Backspace or Delete key to get rid of all the excess garbage. Finally, apply the Simplify command.
