How to attach elastic with NO bump!
So many times have almost finished a project threaded elastic thrum waist band and am now looking at the two ends going YIKES!!! Now what? You could tye it in a knot but thats annoying! or lay the two pieces in top of each other but then you have a chunky spot in the waist which can also be annoying.
I can't remember which of my sewing instructors taught me this method but Thank you Thank you Thank you! I'm sharing this wonderfully simple and easy method.
attach a small square of cotton to elastic with a zig zag stitch
Line up second half of elastic so that are touching and zig zag
Center zig zag stitch. You should now have three rows of Zig Zag stitching
Clip cotton to match size of elastic and stitching
