In today’s article, guide and FREE online fashion sewing video tutorial, I’d like to demonstrate for you how to sew spaghetti straps for your sewing projects.
A spaghetti strap, also commonly referred to as a shoestring strap, is more commonly associated with lingerie, dresses and tops and consists of a very narrow tube of fabric, used as a shoulder strap.
Spaghetti straps can however also be used as a decorative braiding and cording.
The sewing of spaghetti straps is not a complicated process but a really handy technique to procure for your fashion sewing skill set and tool kit.
Sewing Spaghetti Straps – Tools
To create and sew beautiful and delicate spaghetti straps, you are only going to need to use two simple pieces of equipment. They are -
• A zipper foot
• Narrow cord
You can also use a loop turner if desired but in the video tutorial below, I’ll show you how to create spaghetti straps without one.

How to Sew Spaghetti Straps
1 – Cut out your spaghetti strap on the bias grain of your fashion fabric to the required length.
2 – Cut a length of cord, ensuring it is longer in length than the fabric strip.
3 – Fold the fabric strip in half.
4 – Wrap the right side of the fabric around the cord, matching up the raw edges and pin into place.
5 – Start sewing across the cord to secure it in place, and then along the cord to sew the seam.
6 – Trim the seam to 0.3 cm – 1/8inch.
7 – Holding on to the top of the strap, gently pull on the cord. This will bring the strap through to the right side.
8 – Cut away the cord and your spaghetti strap is complete.
