In today’s article, guide and FREE online fashion sewing video tutorial and demonstration, I’d like to show you how to easily create belt thread loops.
There are no hidden extras, no specialist equipment to purchase nor any advanced tuition needed to create belt thread loops for your sewing project.
All you’ll really need, is a needle, thread and the garment itself.
It really is that simple and easy. Let’s have a look!
Making Belt Thread Loops
Belt thread loops are used as a discreet means and ‘invisible‘ way of carrying a garments belt.
Generally made using the same colour thread as the fashion fabric of a sewing project, they are sewn into the side seam of a garment. Because of this they are less likely to be on show and seen by the naked eye.
Belt thread loops can, however, be fragile so are therefore only suitable for belts made from fabrics and other lightweight materials.

So I hope you can see from my video tutorial, that with very minimal effort, you can simply change the design of older garments, or create new and exciting looks with just a needle, thread and a chain stitch.
Creating the Chain Stitch and Belt Thread Loop
1 – Remember to double thread your needle and knot the ends.
2 – Working on the inside of the garment side seam, insert the needle, pulling it through to the right side.
3 – Working on the right side of the garment, catch a couple of strands of fabric with the tip of the needle. Pull through to create a loop.
4 – Reduce the loop to allow just your thumb and index finger to fit through. Take hold of the thread and feed it through the loop. Tighten.
5 – Repeat the process until you have created a ‘threaded chain‘ effect to the correct length for your belt loop.
6 – To complete the chain, pull the needle through the loop and pull until the loop becomes a knot.
7 – Place the needle back into the seam. Secure the stitching on the inside of the garment.
8 – The belt thread loop is complete.
