We especially love using fold-over elastic for finishing the edges of mesh fabric for pockets in purses and bags. Not working with mesh? Fold-over elastic is perfect for finishing a neckline or wristbands on a special outfit. It also beautifully finishes the edges of diapers or diaper covers to securely fit your special baby.
Directions for use: 1. Choose the side that matches best. One side of fold-over elastic is extra shiny for a fashion finish. The other side features a matte finish for a more subtle finish. 2. Position the edges of fabric in center of fold-over elastic. 3. Fold elastic over raw edges and pin at beginning. 4. For smooth edges: Set the stitch to a straight stitch or a narrow, medium-length zig-zag. Carefully guide fabric and fold-over elastic under machine needle and stitch. 5. For gathered edge: Guide fabric and fold-over elastic with one hand as you stretch fold-over elastic tightly with other hand. Then straight or zig-zag stitch on edge of fold-over elastic, catching all layers. Care and instructions: Machine wash warm, do not bleach. Tumble dry at medium heat.
