Foldover Elastic from By Annie for Professional Bag Construction
By Annie's Foldover Elastic provides a decorative finish to apparel and crafts. We particularly love using this fold-over elastic for finishing the edges of mesh fabric for pockets in purses and bags. It can also be used for finishing necklines and wristbands on t-shirts nd also beautifully finishes the edges of diapers or diaper covers to securely fit baby.

Directions for use:
- Position the edges of fabric in center of fold-over elastic.
- Fold elastic over raw edges and pin at beginning.
- 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.
- 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.
