It can be used for trimming necklines, armholes, sleeves, collars, and cuffs on woven or knit garments, diapers, diaper covers, and in place of bias tape.

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
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.

Loved it ...great quality
Very happy with the ribbon has worked great for masks ties during This pandemic, very fast delivery on items also.
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.
Great for baby clothes. So much softer and easier to use than most of what you can buy in the stores.
