You asked: How do you make a big knot for sewing?

How do you make a big knot with thin thread?

Pinch higher up the thread between your middle finger and thumb and slide that finger and thumb down the thread pulling the twisted threads into a knot at the end of your thread. The more you twist the threads the bigger the knot, if you need an even bigger knot wrap it around your finger twice. Practice makes perfect!
