Default Re: Gator Bite help!! My 1st tie keeps coming apart!!!

I found for that first knot Dental Floss (waxed) works best. Its not hard on my hands, it's inexpensive, and because of the wax the threads slide tight real easily, and stay put. I tie my first knot, then loop back around for a second, then slip it out of the gator bite, run a few stitches through with upholestry thread just so I know it's super secure. When I've been in a huge hurry making things for my girls, I sometimes skip the sewing, and you can't tell the difference. HTH
