Tired of frayed and knotted drawstrings on your me-made garments? Follow this quick sewing tutorial on how to finish your drawstrings ends with metal aglets!
One of my biggest frustrations with sewing drawstrings or purchasing drawstring cord is how unfinished they look when you simply tie them in a knot. The ends always fray and the knot can come undone if you don’t tie them tight enough.
As I was sewing my Chalk and Notch Joy Jacket, I knew that I needed to do more with the drawstrings. I didn’t want to have a beautiful brass zipper and grommets while having the drawstrings look knotted and frayed! I decided to look for a solution and I found the perfect answer: metal aglets!
The metal aglets above were installed using an aglet kit I purchased from Lace Lab. I am not in any way affiliated with Lace Lab. I just simply like their kits and products! There are many other styles of aglets you can purchase, but I’ve found these to be the most straight forward to install! You can find their aglet kits here.
Aglets look great on sweater, pants, jacket, and coat drawstrings. I know I will definitely be going back through my me-made stash to finish the ends of my Chalk and Notch Page Hoodie and True Bias Hudson Pants!
