How to Re-string a Hoodie

This instructable will show you have to fix your sweatshirt without a hassle

Step 1: Materials

All you need to do this is a stapler, a straw, and something to remove the staple.

Step 2: Staple the String

Insert the string into either end of the straw about two inches in. Hold it there and staple the very end of the straw, avoiding the hard part of the string.

Step 3: Re-stringing the Sweatshirt

Put the straw in the hole the string should be in. Push/pull the straw through the hood until the whole straw comes out the other side.

Step 4: Removing the Straw

Using a staple remover or any sharp object, remove the staple from the straw and string. Slide the straw off and your sweatshirt is back to normal!

Step 5: Finished Product

    This looks like an improved version of the way my mother showed me how to get a drawstring back in place. That was to use a safety pin so you could push it through a bit at a time, worked but was tedious. This looks much faster.
