Is there already a hole where a string went through? Like are you just looking to replace a missing one or compeletely fabricating a new one?

I say thread a lace in a needle and pull it through between the stiches, what I did to the one i bought last year, or unstich add some elastic by hand stiching and stich it back up. Good luck
