    • Grab both ends of the thread and bring together to form a halfway loop.

    • Tie a double knot tightly. Imagine you are tying a shoelace but only halfway.

    • You'll pull the knot tightly to secure in place.

    • Repeat the last step for the excess thread at the initial sewing starting point.

    • You have completed your sleeve threading.
