Sewing hack you didn't know! Part 4

Are you tired of visible knots ruining the look of your hand-sewn projects? Whether you're creating a beautiful garment, repairing a favorite item, or simply crafting for fun, dealing with knots can be frustrating and take away from the overall aesthetic. But fear not, there's a simple trick to starting your hand-sewing without a knot in sight!

First, double your thread and push the loop through the eye of the needle. It can take a little patience to get the thread through the small eye, but once you do, you're ready to move on to the next step. Adjust the thread so the loop is at the bottom, and then simply insert your needle through the fabric, and through the loop at the first stitch.. This creates a small "anchor" at the beginning of your thread, without the need for a visible knot.

This technique is especially useful for fabrics where a knot might be difficult to hide, such as delicate or sheer materials. It's also a great option for anyone who prefers a cleaner, more streamlined look in their sewing projects. And best of all, it's incredibly easy to do!

So give it a try and see how it elevates the look of your next project. No more unsightly knots getting in the way of your beautiful stitching.

Happy sewing!
