Buttonhole Elastic 3/8 Inch

Current Stock:

Product Description

Baby Soft Buttonhole Elastic  Quantity = number of yards.

57% Polyester 43% Rubber. Custom milled for DSS and imported.

Width  3/8" wide.

Small-scale buttonhole elastic, perfect for adjustable leg diapers. Just like our Baby Soft elastic, this knitted elastic does not narrow when stretched. It is a fine webbing that stretches out when you sew it, then gathers in, without the stiffness of typical polybraid elastic. It has a similar effect as Lastin but is easier to apply.

Use buttonhole elastic for adjustable leg openings and waists of cloth diapers. Also adjusts waistbands on clothing, and any other application where a variable amount of stretch is needed. Please keep in mind that for baby items, the adjustment button should be sewed on securely and checked regularly so that it does not come loose and present a hazard to baby.

Baby soft elastic contains natural rubber latex, if you need latex-free elastic choose Lastin instead.


Sew the buttonhole elastic into an encased leg seam, tack down at one end and leave the other end open. Sew in a small hidden button (3/8" to 1/2" button). This way you can size the diaper leg opening to be just right for any baby.

  1. Button hole elastic 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Oct 2016

    This was just what I needed for my cloth diapers! I couldn't find this in any craft store locally and was hard to find many places that even offered it online and so I ordered a whole bunch of it! I was a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be, but I should have paid more attention to the measurements of it and got smaller buttons for it. Either way, it did the job and I would definitely order this again!

  2. Very well made elastic 5 Star Review

    For the first time I buy from this site and I'm happy with the elastic I received. It is sturdy and well made. I hope it will serve the purpose I bought it for - Cloth diapers. Only the shipping took too much time.

  4. Great product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2016

    I got this elastic to fix some one size Fuzzibunz and it is perfect! I am happy I ordered more than I thought I would need though because I needed more than the regular elastics length I am used to. This was my first time using buttonhole elastics and next time, I won't wait as long before ordering.
