Sewing & Crafts | Closings | Hidden Hooks

Special Finishing Details

HIDDEN HOOKS

  • Hidden Hook Mark desired position of bill end of hook on facing.
  • Make a small opening in the fabric by gently forcing threads apart with blunt end of needle. If a closely woven fabric is used in which the weave cannot be separated, make a tiny slit with sharply pointed scissors.
  • Insert the bill of the hook into the opening, and slip the loop end of the hook into position underneath, so only the bill of the hook is exposed on the right side of the fabric.
  • Slip threaded needle under the hook and sew the loop ends of the hook in place against the facing from the wrong side of the garment. Make stitches as invisible as possible. Fasten the bill end of the hook with a few hand stitches.
  • If a slit was cut into the fabric, sew at the ends of the slit to prevent tearing.
