How To Make a Thread Eye

If you ever need to make a thread eye to pair with a hook, especially at the top of a lapped zipper, here's how it's done.

Thread your needle with a double thread--you will end up with four strands.  Tie a knot.

Take a small stitch in your fabric


Repeat

Slide your needle under the stitch you've just made 

Bring your needle up through the circle you've created

Pull the thread tight toward the top of the stitch.  Now repeat until the stitch is covered in little knots.  Tie a knot on the wrong side of the fabric


All done!!
