Learn how to fix a tear in your piece of clothing with these simple steps.

  1. Lay out your piece of clothing with the tear facing up and in sight on a flat surface.
    • Lay out your piece of clothing with the tear facing up and in sight on a flat surface.

    • A table is a good place for a work surface rather than your lap or the ground.

  2. Cut a long piece of thread with the scissors. Cut the length of the thread according to how long the tear is. For a 5 inch tear, cut about a 1.5 foot piece of thread. If you have excess thread at the end of the task, you can always cut the extra off. You cannot do so if you do not have enough thread to finish sewing. Choose thread that matches the color of the material so that the thread blends in with the material, hiding the tear.

      • This step can be frustrating, but be patient. To make it easier, wet the end you are putting through the hole and flatten the thread with your fingers. Now try again.

      • Be careful while using the needle. It is pointy and sharp.
