So I had the privilege of making up this little ditty in exchange for a food processor (gotta love the barter system 🙂

But I also promised the mama a how to with elastic! So here you go girl!!
Elastic Tutorial
Ingredient List
Sewing machine
Safety pin

Step 1
Lay out your partially sewn garment like so

Step 2
Use something to measure the fold to make sure it’s even (I used a Fre because it’s easy to see)

Step 3
Fold over again and iron (make are your pin and elastic will fit through

Step 4
Sew along the bottom fold

Step 5
Thread your pin through your elastic and close (not to close to the end of the elastic)

Step 6
Thread the pin/elastic through the pocket you created in your garment


Step 7
Sew one end (the end with pin) in place

Step 8
Pull your elastic

Sew again once it’s the desired size!
Cut rest of the elastic and finish the garment!!
