Here's a great tip from Sue K:

"One tip I learned about sewing miters—look at the two pieces as if they form the sides of a capital A. Your seam crosses the A."

    Best selection of fold over elastic

    Posted by Holly Flom on Dec 13th 2020

    I have looked for fold over elastic in a lot of on line shops and this place has the best selection of colors. I like to use fold over elastic on my necklines of my home made t-shirts. I think the fold over elastic makes them a little nicer. Not only is their selection fantastic, their service is very quick. I generally get my order within 7 days. I’m very impressed with this company, and I have bought just about every color they offer, just to have on hand for my next sewing project.

    Love this product. Got it to finish the neckline of a stretchy lace neckline, and it is the perfect finish for this overlay. easy to apply and it molds nicely to the round shape.

    I make a lot of T's for myself, and like to finsh the neckline with Fold Over Elastic. I tend to collect the colors, and you have a GREAT selection. I use a Bernina foot #8 to help see and guide application.
