Simple Sweat-Shirt String Solution

Some people have an odd sense of humor. Some people find it funny to pull out other people's sweatshirt strings when their not looking. Being in Middle School, this is an extremely prevelent "joke". I love wearing Sweatshirts, especcially ones with strings. In this instructable I turned one of my marching band sweatshirts into an "un-de-string-able" sweatshirt in a few easy steps.

Step 1: String the Sweatshirt

Take a string that you like (I used a golden one from an old sweatshirt that I liked) and thread it through the sweatshirt.

Step 2: Sew the "Stopper Stitch"

Take your sweatshirt (with the strings) and make sure the strings are even. Once this is sewed, it will not be able to change too much without taking out the stitches. Sew through the middle of the hood. Trim the leftover threads.

Step 3: The End

That's all, you're done! From here on out, your strings will not get pulled out. I don't know how giving credit has to happen, but the only other time I've seen this idea of sewing the string so it doesn't come out came from one of my favorite Under Armour sweatshirts.

Ist it sewn at the crest of the hoodie? it is unclear by your pics and description - i think i just figured it out...
i would sew it there. some hoodies these days come pre-stitched at the top. i personally rip them out lol. but if youd like to change the colors of the ropes you can always attach a safety pin to one end and wiggle it like an inch worm through the hoodie holes to the other side and pull it out :)

Would it stay in if just sewn up on one side- then still remains adjustable???
