This isn't exactly DIY but I didn't know where else to ask. =/

I washed my beloved Nirvana hoodie today and the drawstring from inside the hood got pulled out... I knew this would happen sooner or later but I have no idea how to thread the string back through, I was wondering if anyone here that has made their own hoodie or has had a similar problem had any tips?

Thanks. ♥

I have no clue if this will actually work, but an idea just popped into my head for this one. You could try taking a really thin rod and attaching the string to it, then use it sort of like a needle to guide it back through the track for the string in the hood. Otherwise, the only things I can think of are to 1) forget the string or 2) unstitch that section of the hood, put the string in place and stitch it back up... neither of which are really what you want to do.

Attach the drawstring to a safety pin. The pin will give you something to grab onto through the fabric to pull it through.
