Does this happen to you? Your cord gets pulled a little too hard and one end escapes into the fortress of the hoodie? Are you frustrated? Annoyed? Fed up with this tired and old disappearing act?
This particular hoodie is Hub’s favorite.
I don’t know how many times I’ve threaded this thing.
Enough is a enough. I think I’ve finally come up with a solution!
I’m going to stitch it into place! But I can’t just use my sewing machine. I want the stitches hidden.
First, I de-corded the hoodie:
Next, choose a threading method. I have a drawstring threader, but I don’t think many people do.
Instead, I’m going to show you the old-fashioned way, with a safety pin. Choose the biggest one you can find in your stash and spear that cord!
Close the pin and insert it through one hole. The safety pin acts as a shuttle for the cord!
Feed it through to the other hole.
Next, pull the ends together and find the middle of the cord (somewhere in the middle of the hoodie).
Stretch the hoodie fabric straight while holding the cord ends.
Now that you have the middle of the cord in the middle of the hoodie, grab a needle and some coordinating thread. Thread the needle, but don’t knot the end.
Next, you are going to pierce the first layer of fabric AND the cord and down back through the first layer.
Pull the needle through while holding one end of the thread with your other hand. Remove the needle and create a simple knot with the ends. Re-thread the needle with both ends and tuck the thread ends into the layers of the hoodie.
Pull the needle tight so the fabric scrunches down a bit.
Trim at the base of the thread.
Stretch the fabric back to normal. The ends will disappear!
Leaving just a small almost invisible stitch!
For added measure, I knoted the ends once more. Hopefully they won’t get sucked back up into the blackholes!
Lastly, put the hoodie on and be weird!
