How To Sew A Tiny Thread Loop Closure

Do you avoid designs with functional buttons and buttonholes because it is just too likley that your project will be destroyed? Fear no more, this tutorial will show you how to create dainty thread loop button closures! You could use this as an alternate closure style in place of buttonholes or zippers. Follow along to see how to make a tiny thread loop!

This exciting sewing tip is being shared with you as an excerpt from the full Sewing Simple Closures course. This course offers a variety of tutorials for adding things like hook and loop tape, buttons, buttonholes, thread loops, and fabric loops to your projects, if you haven't already checked it out I encourage you to take a peek and pick up a copy of the course today, or join the Sewing With Cinnamon community to view this content for free at any time. 

Now onto the tutorial... All you need is:

  • A garment with a finished opening, ready for a closure. (We're using the Lace Overlay Top in this video example.)
  • A hand sewing needle
  • Thread
  • A narrow dowel or pencil
  • A tiny button, we're using a 1/4" button.

 

That wasn't too bad, was it? Are you ready to try this out yourself? We have a bunch of designs that feature this type of closure, I encourage you to try one today!

Practicing this technique can help you approach sewing patterns that include tiny thread loops with confidence! Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

Yes. I use this on the Paradise Cove overalls! I also have used hand or machine quilting thread. It has a coating on it for smooth stitches and sliding. Have a wonderful sewing day!

I have done this type of closure for years. Thought I made it up. I used it for belt loops on human clothing.

C’est bien compliqué ..! Il est plus simple de faire une petite chaînette ,ou bien un point de boutonnière ! Le crayon n’est pas très pratique .
