If you don't have a cotter pin, a safety pin works as well.

    • Pinch the drawstring inside of the drawstring hold.

    • While holding the drawstring, pull the cotter pin out, sliding the drawstring out through the spilt in the pin.

    • While holding the drawstring in the hold, mark where the drawstring will be sewn with tailor's chalk.

    • Sew several passes along the chalk line, being sure to catch the drawstring.
