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!!
Lay out your partially sewn garment like so
Use something to measure the fold to make sure it’s even (I used a Fre because it’s easy to see)
Fold over again and iron (make are your pin and elastic will fit through
Sew along the bottom fold
Thread your pin through your elastic and close (not to close to the end of the elastic)
Thread the pin/elastic through the pocket you created in your garment
Sew one end (the end with pin) in place
Pull your elastic
Sew again once it’s the desired size!
Cut rest of the elastic and finish the garment!!
