String-thrusting is a manly word for sewing, much like hydrator is a manly word for moisturizer.
Anyway, I had a pair of jeans with a hole in the knees. I cut off the lower half with scissors to make shorts. Seemed wasteful to just throw them away Only, I realized I need a hem to stop the part the part of the fabric that was cut from fraying.
I'm trying to string-thrust the hem, manually.
The bit I need help with is at the end. What are good ways for securing the thread so it can't just be ripped out? I've improvised stuff with tying knots, but I can't help but feel that it's woefully inadequate. It certainly looks sloppy, and I have no clue how durable it is.
