Wondering how to restring a hoodie? The process is actually not very difficult. The trick to doing it correctly is to know the proper tools and procedures. Hoodie fabric is quite similar to other types of clothing; if you use the wrong techniques, you can damage the material and make it unusable. However, if you are careful, then you can restring a hoodie without much trouble.
Before starting, it is important to read up on how to sew a jacket first. If you already have some knowledge in this area, then you can skip down to step two. If you are a complete beginner, then you should start with learning how to seew a basic jacket. You should be aware that there are three different methods when it comes to sewing a hoodie.
The easiest method of sewing a jacket is with a sewing machine. If you have access to one, then it is recommended that you get one that has rotating needles. This will make the process go a lot faster. It is also better to choose a sewing machine with buttonhole capacity of at least four. With this kind of capability, you will be able to make several rows of hoodie at a time, compared to using a machine that only has one stitch.
Next, turn your attention to the four small eyes and zippers at the front pockets of your garment. These are what will be damaged when you try to sew the hoodie using regular needles. To do this, you should use a large needle for the first stitch as well as another for the last one. This will ensure that the fabric gets damaged evenly when you sew the zipper together.
Now that everything is lined up properly, you need to sew the zipper to the garment, starting from the bottom edge. However, if your hoodie is sewn with a hand-stitched texture, you can leave out the seam along the bottom edge. Then, take a marker and draw a line directly underneath where the zipper will be, about an inch before the actual zipper. This will help you identify a straight line when you go back to sew the zipper. Marking the place will also allow you to put in sewing filler if you feel that you need to.
Once you are done, turn your attention to the neckline. Sew the rest of the hoodie to this line, matching the line from the marker. You will notice that there will be areas of the fabric where you have to overlap. You will have to work around these by using your seam ripper.
