You can use them as an alternative fastening system for buttons and hooks or for hanging towels! First you measure how long they need to be, depending on the purpose, and make simple thread loops from one anchor point to the other (I make about 10). Then cover the loop you obtained with thread-near-thread blanket stitches!
Tip: Make sure you get the right length of thread in your needle before the blanket stitching cover-up. I avoid using double thread because if it gets tangled most of the times that's it, finito!:(
