How To Get String Back in Hoodie

Have you ever found yourself with a favorite hoodie, only to realize that the drawstring is missing? It’s a common frustration, but fear not! Putting a string back in a hoodie is a straightforward process that can be easily accomplished with a few simple steps. In this guide, we will walk you through the process to string back in a hoodie, so you can enjoy your hoodie to the fullest once again.

Materials Needed To Get String Back in a Hoodie:

  2. Safety pin or a drawstring threader (optional)
  3. A replacement drawstring (if needed)
  4. Scissors (optional)

How to Get a String Back in a Hoodie with Your Hands

Step 1: Choose the Right Drawstring

If your hoodie is missing a drawstring, you’ll need to find a suitable replacement. Look for a drawstring that matches the style and color of your hoodie. You can purchase replacement drawstrings at most craft or fabric stores, or you can repurpose a drawstring from an old garment.

Step 2: Prepare the Drawstring (If Needed)

If you’re using a replacement drawstring, make sure it’s the right length for your hoodie. If it’s too long, you may need to trim it down to size using scissors. Keep in mind that it’s always better to start with a slightly longer drawstring than one that’s too short.

Step 3: Attach a Safety Pin (Optional)

If you have a safety pin or a drawstring threader, attach it to one end of the drawstring. This will make it easier to guide the drawstring through the hoodie’s channel.

Step 4: Locate the Drawstring Channel

The drawstring channel is the tunnel-like opening that runs around the hood of your hoodie. It’s usually located along the edge of the hood and is where the drawstring is meant to be threaded.

Step 5: Begin Threading

Insert the safety pin (or drawstring threader) into one end of the drawstring channel. Start pushing it through the channel, making sure to keep a firm grip on the safety pin to prevent it from getting stuck.

Step 6: Guide the Drawstring Through

Gently guide the safety pin through the channel, taking care not to pull too hard or fast, as this could cause the safety pin to detach from the drawstring. If you encounter any resistance, try wiggling the safety pin gently to navigate around any obstacles.

Step 7: Keep Going Until the End

Continue threading the drawstring through the channel until you reach the other end of the hoodie’s hood. If you’re using a replacement drawstring, make sure it’s evenly distributed along the channel.

Step 8: Adjust the Drawstring

Once the drawstring is in place, adjust it to your desired length by pulling it through the hood. Be sure to leave some excess at the ends to prevent it from getting pulled out again.

Step 9: Tie a Knot (Optional)

If you want to secure the drawstring in place, tie a small knot at each end. This will help prevent the drawstring from slipping out of the channel in the future.


Putting a string back in your hoodie is a simple task that can be accomplished in just a few easy steps. With the right materials and a bit of patience, you can revive your favorite hoodie and enjoy its comfort and style once again. Remember, if you ever find yourself in need of a replacement drawstring, you can easily find one at your local craft or fabric store. Now, go ahead and rock that hoodie with confidence!
