Ribbon Jacket Loop

I hate feeling cold. That's probably why I own nine cold weather jackets even though I live in Tucson, Arizona. From mid-March through October my coats and jackets remain tucked away in the very back of the closet, never seeing the light of day. This time of year, my favorites are hung on hooks in our laundry room, just in case I need one.

I am careful how I hang my jackets on the hooks. I don't like to hang them by their hoods because they get stretched out. I usually slip the little loop by the jacket tag over a hook. Unfortunately, sometimes those little hanging loops fall off  and some jackets don't even have them. So, every once in awhile I find myself sewing a new loop onto a jacket for perfect hanging.


  • 4 inches of 1/8-3/8 inch wide ribbon 
  • no sew glue
  • basic sewing supplies


I used 1/8 inch wide ribbon for my jacket, but you can use anything up to about 3/8 inch wide.

Put a drop of no sew glue on your finger.

Rub it onto the end of the ribbon to keep it from fraying. Do the same on the other end.

Let the glue dry.

Fold under about 1/2 inch of ribbon on each end and position it on your jacket or coat. Pin the ribbon in place.

Stitch the ribbon in place with 5-6 whip stitches. Make sure you are not stitching completely through the jacket. You don't want to see these stitches on the back of your jacket when you wear it.

Stitch the other end of ribbon to the jacket.

That's it. Your jacket or coat can be hung from a hook without stretching out the hood or leaving any strange, permanent bumps and lumps in the fabric.
