Two-yard package of fold-over elastic.

Fold-over elastic provides a decorative-type finish to many decorative apparels and crafts. 

We especially love using fold-over elastic for finishing the edges of mesh fabric for pockets in purses and bags.

Perfect for finishing a neckline or wristbands on a special outfit, fold-over elastic also beautifully finishes the edges of diapers or diaper covers to securely fit baby.

5/8" wide, nylon.

Available in 12 terrific colors.

Please note that each unit ordered is for a pre-cut and packaged piece that is 2 yards long.

Directions for use:

1. Position the edges of fabric in center of fold-over elastic.

2. Fold elastic over raw edges and pin at beginning. 

3. 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.

4. 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
