Double Thread When Sewing Buttons

To make sewing a button on easier and much faster, cut a long piece of thread. Select a needle with a bit larger than usual eye and double the thread in half. Thread the doubled end through the eye and now you have 4 strands of thread to work with.

When you make the knot, you will be tying the 4 strands together. Twice the amount of thread to sew with and fewer stitches through the button.

You can buy button thread at the fabric shop. It's stronger.

Great idea! I'm surprised I haven't thought of that myself! Button thread is so stiff but your idea would work with any size hole and on lightweight garments.

Just a reminder - if you knot each thread you'll have fewer snarls.

I've been doing this for about thirty years.
